Souvenir Easter Egg

The main symbol of Easter is the egg, which is accepted for the holiday to paint and give to friends and acquaintances. The traditional color of the Easter egg is red, which is the basis. The fact is that according to the Bible, Mary Magdalene, after the Resurrection of Christ, came to the emperor of the Roman Empire, Tiberius, and, giving him an egg, told him good news, exclaiming, “Christ is risen!”. The emperor doubted: it is not possible, as it is impossible that the egg turns red. At that moment, Mary Magdalene's gift began to change color before our eyes. Thus, the Easter egg became a symbol of the Resurrection of Christ, a symbol of rebirth, renewal and hope. Nowadays, a painted or decorated egg is not only a symbol of the Easter holiday, but also a wonderful souvenir in which you can embody creative ideas and manifest your artistic taste, not limited to only one color. Here is an example of such a souvenir.
