    The Big Egg Hunt...
    Funny thing these eggs - the designs really did cover everything 
    imaginable and some things you wouldn't have imagined like Gregg (see below)!

    The Big Egg Hunt....
    Below are probably two of my favorite eggs found on the Big Egg Hunt.  
    Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall at entry to St James Palace just off the Mall.
    It was a very fitting place for him to be perched just above a guard for the palace.
    The Royal Post Egg was displayed on Carnaby St and, while the first time I went 
    by it was missing from it's perch,  when I went by at a later date it had re-appeared.
    As you can see from the winning bids listed below -- the Eggs were a big hit 
    and ended up being a grand charity fund raiser!!

    "Humpty Dumpty"

    TRH the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall

    "Egg Letter Box"

    (sold for 42,000 gbp)

    The Big Egg Hunt...
    As you have seen by the eggs shown so far on the blog, 
    the artists had very unique approaches to their egg designs 
    for the Faberge Big Egg Hunt.   You also had to look high and low
    to find the eggs.  Some were on street corners, in front of restaurants or shops, 
    in store windows or department stores, and also above door entries (as seen below).
    Very clever indeed!

    The Big Egg Hunt....
    "Rock the Casbah"
    by Josh Stika

    The "Rock the Casbah" was displayed on a side street off Carnaby Street in Soho.
    The KUA'AINA Grill in the background, it should be noted, 
    is a great little place if you're craving an awesome burger while out in Soho.
    This image is provided to give a bit of perspective on the size of the eggs
    (they are all roughly the same size from what I could tell).

    Seasonal Egg
    by Milo Tchais

    The "Seasonal Egg" was located around St. Christopher's Place
    between Oxford Street and Wigmore.   This area is a fun
    place to grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants
    or do a little shopping in the various boutiques.

    The Big Egg Hunt
    In March 2012
    there were 200 eggs placed around London 
    in the Faberge sponsored charity fundraiser called 
    The Big Egg Hunt
    The 200 very artistic eggs provided a unique challenge
    in the form of an "egg hunt" where people could enter 
    a contest in hopes winning the grand prize -- the
    Faberge Diamond Jubilee Egg.
    All the while money was being raised for 
    Elephant Family and Action for Children charities.
    In honor of the big egg hunt, I'll be posting photos of some of the 
    unique eggs I found around London.    
    Hope some of you had a chance to explore the city and spot a few eggs for yourself!
