Artist’s note: The meaning of the word ceremony is: "a formal religious or public occasion, typically one celebrating a particular event or anniversary."And so this for me represents a ceremony celebrating the fragility of life : The egg is breaking open, and life is inside which has the potential for more life within. As in the gold egg in the inner compartment."
