Created by Dutch artist Henk Hofstra, “Art Eggcident” demonstrates what it would look like if God threw giant eggs down from the sky. The eight large eggs, all sunny side up, measure almost 100ft each to cover a large swath of Leeuwarden (Netherlands). See more here.

    The local population was horrified by this work of art because of the great costs and because the white didn’t stay white for long, and the yellow wasn’t very solid either. The project deteriorated rapidly and quickly looked like a mess, only looking good from the sky.

    I think it was actually removed before the scheduled end because of the bad state the eggs were in. They were falling apart and the white paint had disappeared at places.
