All about eggs

5th March 2004 at 00:00
The egg is a wonderful example of functional design, its basic structure permitting a wide variety of forms. The Egg: The Most Perfect Thing in the Universe?, an exhibition at the Tring annexe of the Natural History Museum, invites visitors to wonder and to learn. Reptiles, insects, sharks and dinosaurs are represented as well as birds. Exhibits range in size from the humming bird's tiny white egg to the huge green one of the emu. Cultural history is also on show, from Egyptian mummified eggs to modern celebratory varieties cast in chocolate. The Egg: The Most Perfect Thing in the Universe? is at the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum, Akeman Street, Tring HP23 6AP until 4 July 2004.
