This Easter egg was made in honour of the famous jewelry company that made first Imperial Easter eggs for the Russian tsars - Faberge. The Faberge Imperial eggs enjoyed great fame throughout late 19th and 20th centuries. Tsarskoselskaya amber workshop felt so much inspired and connected with the Faberge that we decided to manufacture amber Easter eggs. This beautiful elegant Easter egg cherishes a mini bust of the last Emperor of Russia. Nicholas II, his wife the Empress Alexandra and their children were canonized as passion bearers, a category used to identify believers who, in imitation of Christ, endured suffering and death. The beauty of this Easter egg is in the simplicity of the lines, absence of any excessive elements. Mini bust of Nicholas II is a remarkable piece of amber art work.
