Do you remember painting Easter eggs when you were a kid? Well, Easter may be long over, but here’s an exhibition that turns these everyday objects into eggcellent works of art. Presenting Precious Eggs: Of Art, Beauty and Culture.
Housed in the Singapore Philatelic Museum from now till 29 October 2017, the exhibition will consist of 148 unique and never-before-seen egg-inspired artworks. These egg creations are supposed to convey feelings of love, culture, faith, and tradition (and maybe hunger?), guaranteed to make you see these objects in a whole new light.
On display will be a collection of meticulously decorated quail, duck, chicken, ostrich, goose, and swan eggs, specially brought in from the renowned Liechtenstein National Museum in Vienna. There will also be eggs constructed with special materials like crystals and reindeer horn. Yes, you read that right. Reindeer horn.
While you won’t be able to physically inspect these beauties (you don’t want any Humpty Dumpty incident, anyway), you can still obtain a more in-depth look by tapping into the QR codes available at the venue, and have a 360-degree view of the art on your phones.
Maybe, the next time you crack open an egg for an omelette, it won’t just be brunch on your mind.
Date & Time: Until 29 October 2017, 10am to 7pm
Price: Free for Singaporeans and PR. For non-Singaporeans/PR, Adult:$8, Child:$6
