The individually designed eggs that collectively formed London’s Big Egg Hunt have been brought together over Easter.
Anyone heading to an Easter celebration at function venues in the capital can get into the spirit of the season by heading to Covent Garden’s piazza to view the eggs, which were previously scattered around London in what was billed as the biggest egg hunt in history.
According to Scout London, the pieces have been on display there since Tuesday (April 3rd) and will be available to view until the bank holiday this coming Monday (April 9th).
The Easter-influenced collection is the last time people will be able to view the 210 eggs before they are auctioned off, with some of the artists due to be in attendance at certain points to add the finishing touches to their pieces. Among the more famous artists involved in The Big Egg Hunt were the Chapman brothers, Zandra Rhodes and Sir Peter Blake.
Charities Action for Children and Elephant Family will benefit from sales of the fibreglass eggs. Londonist suggested the art project is similar to the Elephant Parade from 2010 or the Cow Parade that has ended up having international success following its launch in Switzerland in 1998 – London hosted it in 2002.
