Precious Eggs: Of Art, Beauty and Culture
Wed Apr 12 - Sun Oct 8 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
For the very first time outside of Europe, a collection of 148 one-of-a-kind eggs, specially selected from the vaults of the Liechtenstein National Museum, will be on show at the Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM) from 12 April to 8 October 2017! The artistic creations tell interesting stories that reflect love, history, culture, art, faiths and traditions.
Besides intricately decorated quail, chicken, duck, goose, swan and ostrich eggs, there are eggs crafted from precious and enamelled metals, glass, porcelain, wax, crystal, marble, stone, wood, reindeer horn, cardboard, and papier-mâché. Also on show is a series of commissioned egg sculptures created by Liechtenstein’s leading artists, including Dr George Malin, Arno Oehri and Sunhild Wollwage.
To enhance the museum experience for visitors, SPM has incorporated multimedia elements into the exhibition. A highlight is the direct and personalised interaction with some of the eggs. When you tap onto the Precious Eggs network via a QR code, you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the egg on your mobile device. How cool is that?
Admission is FREE for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents!
