Pysanka egg demonstration featuring Ukrainian-decorated eggs

Wax, crystal, chicken, marble, reindeer horn and ostrich: if you’re wondering what these have in common, they're all part of an exhibition featuring 148 one-of-a-kind eggs. And not just any eggs, but ornate and delicate pieces – some of which were even hand-carried – from the Liechtenstein National Museum. Admire a glass egg containing ashes from the Mt Helena volcanic eruption of 1980; a chicken egg with tiny horseshoes nailed onto its surface; and a pair of imperial porcelain factory eggs from 1914 that survived the civil revolutions and World War I.
