Day 4 Egg

This is a Russian Egg that Faith brought back for Kim a few years ago. It has a nice rendering of a Russian Orthodox Cathedral, though it doesn't look like any rendering of St. Basil's that I've ever seen. This egg sits on a little stand and is prominently displayed in our wall unit at the moment. It has spent time on one of our two little curio shelves in the past.

  1. I love eggs and churches, somehow they just fit so well together, like bacon on a maple donut. The church is orthodox but not St. Basil's.
    I believe it is found within the walls of a monastery.

    The Holy Trinity Lavra or Troitse-Sergiyeva Lavra (Trinity-Sergius Monastery) is the most important monastery in Russia and the spiritual center of Russian Orthodox Christianity. Founded in 1345 by St. Sergius of Radonezh and containing his relics, Holy Trinity is located in the city of Sergiyev Posad (formerly known by the Soviet name Zagorsk) about 45 miles northeast of Moscow.
