Follow Caspian Arts Foundation in The Big Egg Hunt

We're very excited for the launch of the Big Egg Hunt and would like to thank Mèchante of London and Zara Martin for designing an exquisite egg on behalf of Caspian Arts Foundation.

We aspire to bring new opportunities and hope through all the work we do. CAF represents new beginnings, making our participation in the Big Egg Hunt an ideal and fun way to unveil our plans for 2012.

Get your hunting boots ready !
We love how this resembles and reminds us of beautiful calligraphic lines and how the black exterior is set off by the glow from the rose gold interior making this egg truly spectacular. Of course being a hunt, we can't reveal the exact location of our egg. Our clue - head towards London's favourite street performing location!

After the hunt, these highly collectible eggs will be available to buy at auction. Proceeds raised will go towards Action for Children and  Elephant Family – UK’s biggest funder for the endangered Asian elephant.  

Be part of setting a new world record ….
This is the first event of its kind, and is tipped to top the Guinness World Records for the highest amount of participants in an Easter egg hunt. For further information on how to take part in the hunt, please visit the Big Egg Hunt’s website.

Happy hunting!

We’re also very excited to collaborate with Deborah Lyons, exquisite footwear designer from Mèchante of London, and Zara Martin, for designing an ‘egg’ for the Fabergè Big Egg Hunt. Hatching on Tuesday 21st February 2012, and lasting for 40 days and 40 nights, the Fabergè Big Egg Hunt will be taking place in various locations around London. 
Throughout the year, we’ll also be interviewing some inspiring young artists to hear how scholarships have provided opportunities which would not have otherwise been available to them. So to get involved, or to follow our journey, stay tuned and please follow us on Facebook!
