Happy Easter Egg

How to make an egg? A rather strange question, for which you only need an answer if on Holy Saturday you suddenly get an idea for yet another virtual sculpture, after the Five and the Silver Elephant.

How to make an egg

You don’t need any advanced 3d modelling to create an egg, but still it has a slightly more complex shape than you might think. An egg is not an ellipse but a combination of different curvatures. Here I found a clear guide to construct it from a pentagon shape. At least the result looks like an egg.

The West Cape of Rotterdam’s Noordereiland is a good site to place the egg, for reasons that are more obvious in Dutch than in English.
