Dutch artist Henk Hofstra took Wilhelmina Square in the city of Leeuwarden, one of the largest city squares in Holland, and filled it with 8 massive eggs, all sunny side up and measuring nearly 100 feet in diameter. The yolks are enormous domes ranging in size from 8 to 25 feet in diamater. He calls this whimsical installation an Art Eggcident.
"I hope it becomes a meeting place with room for art," says Henk. "Art that is different than a framed picture on the wall or a boring bronze sculpture. Art that shows us a different look, surprises us, or makes us angry or happy. Art that allows photographers to grab their cameras and arouses journalists. Art that evokes emotion, or provokes wild laughter."
Although Hofstra had to spend 4 months in various planning meetings with concerned companies and local authorities simply to get permission to create his colossal public art project, it took only 2 days to physically create all of those enormous eggs.
