Artist's Description

(AS IS, Finepix F70EXR, EXR mode DR400, f3.3, ISO100, 1/125 secs, -1 1/3, WB cloudy)
Traditionally painted eggs, ready for Easter (Orthodox/Greek). Pictured in an Athenian market, the day before Easter (2010).
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 :) These days, for the busy and/or lazy, they can be bought ready boiled and painted. This lady was weighing them and picking them, probably ready to start bargaining with the seller…

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 :)
