Fabergé, the famous Jeweller that created the famous Russian Imperial Easter eggs, has organised a MASSIVE Easter Egg Hunt, with over 200 Easter eggs made by famous artists including Marc Quinn, Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood, Sir Ridley Scott, and Polly Morgan. The Easter eggs are made from fibreglass to ensure they can withstand the elements.
Each egg is roughly 76 centimetres high. All the eggs have been hidden across London. Easter egg hunt participants only have the forty days and nights of Lent to find them all. Using either an iPhone or Android phone, egg hunters can receive clues through Facebook or Twitter to help them find the Fabergé Easter eggs and win prizes when they find them. One of the top prizes is a £100,000 Fabergé egg.
At the end of the 40 days, the decorated Fabergé Easter eggs will be sold at auction, with 170 of them sold online for those that can’t make it to the auction house. The money raised from the auction will be split equally between the Action For Children charity and the Elephant Family charity.
The Big Egg Hunt by Fabergé starts at 10am on the 21st February 2012.
