The Big Egg Hunt presented by Fabergé has placed over 200 painted and decorated egg sculptures all over central London from 21st February until the Easter weekend. Its not unlike the Elephant statue event of 2011. Some of the eggs are in the same places. I’ve seen a few on my way to and from work. The placement of one that made me smile (behind St Martins in the Fields)
Another one, this time on the South Bank, a colorful statement amongst the grey concrete of the South Bank Centre, called Sarah.
There were a few assorted eggs on the South Bank on the dank, grey, wet morning I was there. One wonders about the artistic content, though.
This one is the opposite, monochrome against the vivid colored poster.
Yet another, this time inside a perspex case.
A Ganesha egg in St Martins Lane, just laid.
I can’t say I have same sense of whimsical humour that one felt for the elephants. These are, after all, just ovoid shapes and what anyone who buys one intends to do with them is beyond me. I suppose The Elephant Family and Action for Children will benefit from this egg hunt across Central London.
