Multicolored Ovoids

In Iran, right about this time of year, they celebrate with decorated eggs.

Not Easter eggs. Nowruz eggs.

Nowruz , the Persian New Year, kicks off on the vernal equinox.

It's no exaggeration -
in fact, it's quite exact -
to say egg decoration
deserves examination
since its colorful history
seems to be shrouded in mystery.
