For those of you who celebrate Easter, Happy Easter; for those of you who don't, Happy Spring! I painted this duck egg with a design based on the ancient taotie 饕餮 animal mask motifs used on Shang Dynasty bronzes. The taotie is an old symbol of gluttony, and these masks may have been intended as a warning of the perils of greed: quite useful in my line of work! #easteregg #taotie
