This amazing privately commission one of a kind giant egg was painted by Cecily Tattersall, titled Middle Man in 2013. Part of The Big Egg Hunt to raise money for Action For Children the eggs travelled the country and was then auctioned. Some eggs raised over £20,000 each. The paint has been designed to be waterproof although I would not guarantee the great British weather !. A true one of a kind statement piece of art. A box could be made for the base to sit inside easily.

Cecily has transported a section of Piero della Francescas The Baptism of Christ, 1448-50, a holy sacrament which symbolises re-birth, onto her egg. The figure is preparing for baptism by removing his shirt. This act keys into the idea of shedding the old life, revealing new skin, new life.
