The Fabergé company is one of the worlds most famous jewelers. Dating back to 19th century imperial Russia, they most known of course for their gem encrusted golden eggs. Today their eggs are still known, and probably most thought about during Easter.
This Easter, for the first time in New York, Faberge brought us its famous Big Egg Hunt. This is a program that brings artists together renown artist, and designers for charity. There were over 280 eggs this year, each one 2 1/2 feet tall, with each one up for auction online. The proceeds go to Studio in a School, a group that brings arts programs to public schools, and to Elephant Family, a conservation group saving elephant populations.
This week all the eggs (which were scattered around NYC since April 1st) are brought together on display here in Rockefeller Center. As my office is just a block away, I had a chance to run through them, and take some photos, on this wonderfully beautiful day. I must say, some really nice work. Here are a few photos of a few I liked and found interesting. For more info you can check out their website - and even bid on some.
