50 Enormous Easter Eggs at the Living Art Festival

16. April 2012 by Masha 0 Comments

Yesterday was Russian Orthodox Easter. How did your favorite Russian brides celebrate? Those living near Lavrushinsky Pereulok may have visited the Living Art Festival to see 50 enormous Easter eggs and try their hand at painting them.

 

The festival took place next to the State Tretyakov Gallery, which has the largest collection of Russian art in the world.

 

While professional artists hand painted most of the eggs, such as Yevgeny Miro, Alexander Zakharov, Veronika Ponomareva, and Andrei Bartenev, a few eggs were left untouched so that visitors could contribute to the artworks.

 

The organizers said the street festival was designed to bring together professional artists and ordinary passersby. But what will happen to all of the eggs now that Easter is over? One option is for them to be donated to Orthodox churches as decorations.
