Friday Egg

Ha! You didn't think I would get to this today but I did! I am posting an egg I completed a few weeks ago. This is basically a traditional egg with poppy motif, but the geometry is a bit more contemporary. There are four windows, and the poppy design is a bit different in each one. Take a look:

It is as yet unvarnished, but I think it will look pretty once the shiny layer goes on. It does a lot to bring out the colors - the red and green are going to pop!

I have it here on a new stand I ordered.  I'm not sure whether I like it or not.  I think that it becomes less about the art and more about the contraption:

What do you think?
