And it belongs to me now.”

Ed Valigursky - Cosmic Checkmate, 1962.
“Poland, 19th C. Egg decorated with micrographic text from the Song of Songs. Handwritten in ink. From the 18th century, and perhaps even earlier, hollow eggs on which sacred texts had been written in micrography were used to decorate European sukkahs. Not all the texts related directly to the holiday of Sukkot, the Festival of Booths: this example has Song of Songs 1-4:7 inscribed in miniscule letters. At times feathers were added to the hanging egg, so that it looked like a bird in flight.”
This is actually a practiced art form that developed out of Jews having to put very long pieces of holy text onto small pages. In times when practising Judiasm was outlawed, they’d put whole books onto single pages becuase they were much easier to hide or sneak from place to place!
I have this really gorgeous pictures of Esther made out of the text of the Book of Esther in my bedroom!
