Why an egg? Why not paint on a flat surface? This question has followed St. Clair for over 30 years. "Nothing can match the mystery of the egg," she says. "For centuries, this small, protective shell has carried deep significance. It is a universal symbol of life, creation, rebirth, good fortune, transformation, and enlightenment. To hold an egg in your hands is like holding a miniature world - a world no more fragile than the one we live in - no more fragile than we are."
