ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Easter Egg project came out of the initiative to revive traditional Serbian values and keep them through further promotion from sinking into oblivion. Thus, by binding one of the greatest Christian holidays – Easter and Serbian medieval wall painted ornaments, a new egg in old Serbian garments has been created – an egg cherishing Serbian cultural and art heritage – the guardian of our tradition.


ABOUT THE AUTHORS

The idea emerged from the inspiration and enthusiasm of a Creative Family that lives in Belgrade but thinks in Serbia, although the author of this project is considered to be each and every one of you that brought it to life.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

The product consists of 10 decorative wrappers for decorating eggs and is produced in 6 different sets. The whole collection comprises of 60 different motifs in total. The motifs are printed on a plastic shrinking foil which is harmless in contact with food, however inedible. Each motif is to be cut separately, placed on a previously boiled and cooled egg and then dipped into a pot of boiling water for a few seconds for the wrapper to shrink around the egg (view instructions).

THE MONASTERIES

The motifs used for decorating the Easter Egg have been cherished for centuries within the walls of Serbian medieval monasteries on the territories of the old Serbian states. Taken down from the walls of thirty-six monasteries, six theme collections have been produced, classified by territory: Kosovo and Metohia, Morava school, Ohrid Heritage, Old Raska, Old Serbia and Zeta. The majority of these monasteries nourish the traces of the stormy Serbian history, while some of them, as well as the ornaments that depict them, have been either lost forever, damaged or are inaccessible to us, seized or stripped of their original history. However, in this way we shall save them from oblivion.
