Envisioned as record-breaking egg hunt across Central London to raise money for the two respective organizations, the eggs are hidden from now until Easter.
Eggs are envisioned by these charities as representing a fresh start and hope for the future. But these eggs are unlike any you’ve seen before. Jointly presented by Fabergé, there are over 200 beautifully painted and decorated eggs in all sizes and colors.
Patrick Mavros is among the artists asked for their unique interpretation of a decorated egg.
“If a child is asked to name all the types of animals they know, their minds race in excited anticipation. If an adult is asked the same question, their brain reaches far and wide hoping that one or even two of the species will not have disappeared before they get to the end of their list,” Patrick Mavros said. “This egg is to make children happy and to make adults think.”
All the eggs are for sale and will be auctioned at a live event by Sotheby’s and a grand online auction. Check out Patrick Mavros’ egg here.
