The extravagant Fabergé adventure invites locals and visitors to take part in a mass treasure hunt in New York. In its final days, the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt has turned Manhattan into an artistic Easter playground, as 260 oversized egg sculptures have been spread throughout the city.
Each egg is decorated by a famed artist, designer, photographer or architect. Fashion photographer Bruce Weber contributed an egg with images he has taken of Kate Moss, Marc Quinn’s egg is adorned with fingerprints, while the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall’s egg takes the form of Humpty Dumpty, described by Prince Charles as “a favourite nursery rhyme character”.
The project also includes eggs from Zaha Hadid, Tracey Emin, Diane von Furstenberg and Jeff Koons. After being displayed throughout the city until tomorrow, their eggs will all be displayed in a free exhibition at the Rockefeller Center from April 18 to 25.
Members of the public will then be able to buy the eggs at auction, with the proceeds going to the New York-based conservation charity Elephant Family and Studio in a School.
