Slovenian artist, Franc Grom creates egg art using an electric boring tool. The results are stunning and as laborious as the finest of craftsmen from centuries past. The eggs that Grom creates have approximately 2,500 to 3,500 holes (he has been known to drill up to17,000 in one piece). The results are simply amazing. Who would have thought that something so delicate could be made even more fragile and precious.

  • 8. El arte de perforar huevos… | ana lisa lou ^_^  |  September 26, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    […] Estos son huevos decorados para la fecha de pascuas por el artista eslovaco Franc Grom.  Que pereza de arte ah? ajajaj vende las piezas como esculturas y souvenirs de la temporada. Dice el artículo que un huevo creado por él podría tener entre 2500 a 3500 huecos. El máximo de huecos que ha hecho han sido 17,000 en uno sólo. ajaja Ahora que lo pienso,  más aburrido que abrirle hueco a los huevos, debe ser contar las veces… En todo caso, coo!, se ven pretty y es algo distinto que ver en el internet. Este es el link para que vean: https://momeld.wordpress.com/2008/03/23/happy-easter-eggs/ […]
