World Eggs

World Eggs derive its name from Finnish national epic poetry: ¨Kalevala¨ compiled by Elias Lönnrot in 19th century.
The story of Kalevala starts from the birth of world, where the bird Sotka (eng. Aythya) lays seven eggs on the knee of witch called Ilmatar. In the story, the eggs break into the sea and the sky, the earth, the stars and the sun are born bringing alive the world we are living in.

In my work, I have updated the story to the The 21st century, where the eggs represent new and better world being born. These eggs bring together differences, appearance, color and different details. They symbolise important qualities and elements of both, humans and nature, which we need so a better world can be born.

The exact total number of initial eggs has not been determined.
