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 is a thing of the past. Artists today are taking the art of decorating eggs to the next level.
