Artist's Description

(AS IS, Finepix F70EXR, EXR mode DR400, f3.3, ISO400, 1/4 secs, +1 2/3)
Traditionally painted eggs, ready for Easter (Orthodox/Greek). Pictured in an Athenian household (thanks, Alice!) on the night of Good Friday.
When I was a child, I used to help my grandmother and my mother with the Easter preparations, and pretty soon I graduated to doing the eggs :-) Easter day we (especially the children) would take one each, knock them to break them while saying ‘Christ has risen!’ and answering ‘Truly, he has!’ (the eggs are hard-boiled before being painted, in case you’re wondering :-) ), then peel and eat them. How we didn’t kill our livers with all the eggs and wine we had each Easter, it’s a miracle :-)
