The streets around Buchanan Street in Glasgow have been hosting a charity event organised by Action for Children called the Big Egg Hunt. There are 101 giant eggs, many of which feature designs from leading artists, which have been located in Glasgow’s streets and shops as part of an Easter fund-raising event.
The eggs are all around 2 feet high and are mounted on wooden boxes with details of their artists and sponsors. Unfortunately, one worth 10,000GBP was stolen on Friday 15th March, but hopefully it will turn up undamaged.
The event is being held in a number of cities in the UK.
Here are some photographs of the event in Glasgow.

The eggs are all very well thought out and well designed. It was very enjoyable walking looking at them.
