Egg Decorating and Hiding
In paganism, the egg was a symbol of rebirth of the Earth in spring. Early Christians adopted the symbol with a meaning of rebirth of God’s son. A chick cracking the shell and hatching out was associated with Christ cracking his tomb and resurrecting from the dead. In the beginning, Easter eggs were dyed red to represent the blood of Christ but later people started painting eggs with different colors and designs, turning the tradition into an art. In the 19th century, the Russian artist and jeweler Peter Carl Faberge became famous making Easter eggs from precious metals and gemstones. You may want one of our lovely Faberge style eggs, or a decorative wooden Easter egg, as a holiday decoration in your home or to give as a gift to your friends or family.
