An unusual collection of ostrich eggs utilized as "round canvases" by contemporary artists.
[Ovation. Aprile di Cimia collection] A fine selection of artworks created on a truly singular surface: ostrich eggs, suggested to contemporary artists as “rounded canvases” to be used and transformed by their creativity.
This unusual, amusing gallery is introduced by a text that retraces, through different cultures and eras, the notion of the egg as a symbol of life and primordial fertility, a perfect, archetypal form that entices men. An attraction that has also enticed the creator of this collection, who was struck by the image of an egg of Aepyornis Maximum found in a street market in the capital of Madagascar.
