Easter Egg City

If, as a child, you searched for hidden Easter eggs, what would you have thought about discovering an entire city of eggs? An exhibit at an art gallery in Kiev displayed building replicas made of colored eggs. The almost 17,000 eggs were used to create Saint Sophia Cathedral and a city of castles Kamenets-Podolsky. The roof of the cathedral was painted gold. Stacking eggs on end must be more delicate than building a house of cards. The individual eggs from this Ukrainian egg city were given away as souvenirs after the show closed. Now those must be unusual souvenirs. The tradition of Ukrainian painted eggs also include hand-painted church designs. Speaking of eggs, I've written in the past about those famous and fabulous Faberge eggs. If you're hungry, check out chocolate architecture and other buildings. Last easter, Scott wrote about the Tomb of Christ replica.
