The design is inspired by a Venice Carnival mask. It is sealed with a coat of crystal clear UV resistant varnish. The egg is secured on a “dress” sewed by my mother. The series “Masks on Eggshells” is inspired by traditional Venetian designs and can decorate your festive space in a more unique and infrequent space since they are hand-painted carnival masks on real goose eggshells.
This vintage egg was displayed in my first decorated egg’s exhibition in Athens, 1994.
