White House Easter Eggs
This egg painted trompe l'oeil style was painted by Laura to represent the state of Mississippi for the 2002 Easter Egg Collection.
The bee is Mississippi's state insect. The egg is painted on the shell's surface, smooth with no crack nor painted inside.
Laura D'Argo was chosen by the American Egg Board to create these eggs for the White House's Easter Egg Collection. The honor continued with an invitation to meet the First Lady Laura Bush, A White House tour and a reception in the First Ladies' Garden.
Both eggs are painted in acrylics on a blown out, brown chicken egg. They will reside in the Presidential Library as a piece of history
