    The egg is nature's perfect package. It has, during the span of the celebration of its special
    symbolism. Before the egg became closely entwined with the Christian Easter, it was
    honored during many rite-of-Spring festivals. The Romans, Gauls, Chinese, Egyptians and
    Persians all cherished the egg as a symbol of the universe. From ancient times eggs were
    dyed, exchanged and shown reverence.

    With the advent of Christianity the symbolism of the egg changed to represent, not nature's
    rebirth, but the rebirth of man.   Christians embraced the egg symbol and likened it to the
    tomb from which Christ rose.

    A Polish legend tells of when Mary Magdalen went to the sepulchre to anoint the body of
    Jesus. She had with her a basket of eggs to serve as a repast. When she arrived at the
    sepulchre and uncovered the eggs, lo, the pure white shells had miraculously taken on a
    rainbow of colors.

Decorating and coloring eggs for Easter was the custom in England during the middle ages. The
household accounts of Edward I, for the year 1290, recorded an expenditure of eighteen pence for
four hundred and fifty eggs to be gold-leafed and colored for Easter gifts.

Although the omens and the mystery of the egg have disappeared today, the symbolism remains,
and artists continue in the old world tradition of adorning eggs.
