Sorbian tribesmen from eastern Germany create extraordinary Easter eggs, which they decorate with special paint and intricate engravings.


Their craftsmanship, unique decorative style and delicate etching techniques have been handed down from generation to generation for more than a thousand years.


You don't have to go to Europe to see these beautiful works of art. An exhibition of Sorbian Easter Eggs is on at the World Trade Centre in Hong Kong until April 22. Entry is free.


Visitors also get the chance to learn egg decoration techniques. For more information, call 2576 4121.
