Ostereierkrone (Easter Egg Crown)

Every year, a group of women from Hattenheim (Hattenheimer Landfrauen) comes together to create this "crown" made with handpainted Easter eggs. It's actually not a tradition from our region (it comes from the southern part of Germany) but a nice "imported" one :).

Unfortunately, it started raining when I wanted to take this picture so it ended up being a "point and shoot photo". But you might recognize the building in the background from an earlier post...

That 'crown' looks more like a lamp shade to me. I'd love to see the eggs close up. Nice building though.
