Why Eggs at Easter ?
So today I learned why Eggs maybe so closely associated with Easter. Partly because the Church adopted Eggs as a pre-Christian ancient symbol of life and re-birth, and, in the Middle Ages, the Church forbade the eating of meat and eggs during lent. Farmers suddenly had a lot of eggs, which were boiled, decorated, consecrated and given away for the table on Easter Sunday.
Our forthcoming Studio Exhibition will revisit the theme of engraved eggs.
