Object Description
This is a cream-colored wax egg decorated with colored beads in a floral pattern.  On one side of the egg, there are blue, yellow and green flowers surrounding the word "THNOS" written in pink beads. The other side of the egg has a faded depiction of Christ painted onto it with "X" and "A" written on either side of the image.  The egg is in a delicate basket made of beads meticulously strung together, resembling a tiny Easter basket.  The beads on the basket are navy, white and red with a round white and green cloth base.
