Heir to the Empire

Hen eggshell, hand painted with acrylics and cold enamels.

This egg was inspired by the traditional designs of byzantine precious fabrics, in pattern and colours: black, gold and Imperial purple. A yellow crystal marks the top. It is sealed with a coat of crystal clear UV resistant varnish. The egg is seated on a black velvet pillow with a golden lace, one of my limited attempts at sewing.

This vintage egg was displayed in my first decorated egg’s exhibition in Athens, 1994.
