Although, I was unable to actually attend the Lunchtime Lecture due to the National English Honor Society Inductions, I watched the recording on youtube, and I was very intrigued by these eggs. Previously I had heard of these eggs and even seen them in person at the VMFA, but I had no idea how valuable they are both in monetary value, as well as in historical and narrative value. Their story is so rich and interesting. I loved learning about the man who bought it at a flea market not understanding what it was nor its value, and then when he found out and the inspector dude came and fainted because the egg was thought to be lost. I thought that story was very interesting and I'm surprised the owner of it from the flea market didn't google it to see if it had actual value. I also thought it was hilarious that the Seattle Museum of Fine arts missed out on this wonderful collection due to not responding to the letter that the donor sent. I bet they are very frustrated in missing out on such a wonderful opportunity. I don't think I would ever incorporate any of this into my art work, however. It is simply too excessive and elaborate and too sculptural for my tastes, but I am content to view admirably from afar.
