Across the world, millions of people celebrate Easter in a variety of ways. One common component of this festive holiday is the ornate Easter egg.

Originally, chicken eggs were stained in red as a cultural symbol–a practice that dates back centuries to early Christian communities in Mesopotamia. In modern times, this tradition has lived on and taken new, artistic forms.

Egg art has evolved into something separate from religious rituals, proving to be a new form of creative expression. Staining, dyeing, and painting eggs in singular, solid colors are a thing of the past. Artists today are taking the art of decorating eggs to the next level.

Scroll down to check out some of the most amazing art created from, on, and in eggshells–not to mention decorative renditions of eggs altogether.

Egg art is not only a celebration of the Easter holiday but a form of creative self-expression. Check out these egg-cellent designs.
