For six weeks leading up to Easter, central London is hosting The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. Over 200 fibreglass eggs, designed by famous artists including musician M.I.A. and architect, Zaha Hadid, will be hidden in nooks and crannies around the city. Organisers hope to raise £2million for Action for Children, which provides support for vulnerable young people, and Elephant Family, which works to save endangered Asian Elephants.
Sotheby’s will auction off thirty of the eggs at a ticketed event on March 20, while the rest are up for bid in an online auction until April 9. On Easter weekend, the eggs will be reunited in a ‘secret location’ for a celebratory viewing called ‘The Grand Eggstravaganza’ before nestling into their new homes.
