On April 8th the exhibit of carved eggs opened in Velingrad, Bulgaria. A few logistical issues arose early, the most traumatic being Air France losing all the bags with our personal items and all the cases containing a significant number of the collection.
Luckily, we were able to recover them before the exhibit opened. Due to the delays caused by the missing luggage we were forced to work very early in the morning of the opening managing to complete the set-up of the exhibit only 1/2 hour before the dignitaries arrived.
It was an amazing ceremony overseen by the staff of the museum, 3 deputy mayors and numerous members of the local media.
The egg shown here is ostrich and it bears the Bulgarian Coat of Arms rendered in scrimshaw.
