Hebrew Letter Eggs~
2012
Concrete/Metal
In Judaism there are two interpretations of the symbolism of the hard boiled egg (Baytzah). One is that it is an ancient fertility symbol. The other is found in Passover a holiday full of ritual symbols that retell the Exodus story. A boiled egg is one of the symbolic foods eaten during the Sedar on the first night of Passover.

Each egg in this collection collection has a Hebrew letter impression stained with iron oxide and random metal stems. Each egg is about 4" H with the metal stem and 5 1/4" in diameter and weigh under 4 oz.
