Nathalie Priem of Domus Nova has partnered with The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, an innovative and engaging fundraising initiative that will see over 250 large egg sculptures – each designed by globally renowned artists, designers and creatives - placed throughout New York City’s five boroughs, before being auctioned off for two wonderful causes.
Artist and photographer Nathalie Priem has designed Egglomise: a forgotten treasure. This exquisite mirrored jewel was crafted from over 600 pieces of gilded glass, to look old but beautiful. It is precise, geometric and regular while looking unique and ever changing within its surroundings. It is kindly being hosted by the Empire State Building for the duration of the hunt, before moving onto the Rockefeller Centre for a final viewing of the full collection.
The general public will be encouraged to participate by finding all of the eggs, with incredible gemstone prizes from Fabergé serving as an incentive. The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt will culminate with a spectacular auction of the collectible and one-of-a-kind egg sculptures, held by Sotheby’s and online via Paddle8.
Created as an innovative and engaging platform to raise funds for Elephant Family and other non-profits, The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt caused a frenzy in London in 2012, set two Guinness World Record titles and ultimately raised over $1.5 million for charity. The 2014 hunt in New York will benefit both Elephant Family and Studio in a School.
