There Will Be Eggs

A universal symbol of creation is the hatching of an egg. The egg itself figures as an important symbol in many early creation myths across the world, embodying the concepts of birth and rebirth, new life and fertility. Throughout history eggs have been at various times magical, protective, divine — even evil, and they are an obvious fertility symbol.
Beautiful multi-colored and elaborately decorated eggs are a popular folk art across the world. Learn more about their fascinating journey through history!
