Title: Where Easter eggs come from……
Fleeting Sculpture was asked by The Irish indoor fun park Funtasia to create an exhibition of Ice sculptures to be an attraction during the Easter period 2015 . Daniel Sourced an old European Myth about Easter eggs and created several sculpted scenes to illustrate the tale
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Hilda. She had an magical chicken who laid the most wonderful chocolate eggs.
One sunny day while out playing with her chicken Rufus the dog came running across the field barking with excitement to join in the fun. But sadly for Hilda her chicken got scared and flew away never to be seen again.
A little while later in another part of the kingdom a little boy called Stefan received a gift of a rabbit for his birthday from his grandfather.
Many years later Stefan’s beautiful rabbit ran away and while searching for him in the fields Stephan met Hilda who was still searching high and low for her chicken. They instantly fell in love and soon were married.
Although their life was good with riches and happiness. The two still had a longing for their missing pets Stephan would search every spare moment for the rabbit and chicken while Hilda would wait by the door in case they returned.
Stefan decided to ask the the Wizardess Zara for help. She thought for a moment, told him to leave it with her.and that he and Hilda should go to the town square the next morning, which was Easter Sunday
At dawn the next day Hilda and Stefan entered the square to find a giant rabbit as big as a house and a giant pile of chocolate eggs. The Rabbit said he brought greeting from their pets and that they were doing well living a happy life in the enchanted forest and that he would return once a year on this day to bring them and the town’s people delicious Chocolate eggs. Then as if by magic he disappeared. This is why the Easter bunny brings the Chocolate eggs. So far, they have all lived happily ever after.
