World's Largest Mosaic Egg

Made of 41,900 pieces of mosaic, it took two years to piece together this giant egg.  

Made out of 41,900 pieces of mosaic, the world’s largest mosaic egg weighs 1,800 kilos (nearly 4,000 pounds) and stands at 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) tall. Created by Marja van Woerkom, it took two years to complete. You can see the egg and lots of other mosaic sculptures on Saturdays and Sundays during the day.
