Thought behind the thought
Who would imagine that an egg could fly? But it does, when it transforms into the bird it always was! And so can we. If we only recognize this truth, it will motivate us to take the efforts towards becoming what we really are. It is difficult, and at times frustrating. Most of us give up very easily. Most of us wonder whether the transformation is worth the effort, after all! But if we believe in ourselves, we could overcome this skeptical frame of mind, and transform our shells into wings!

About the art
Eggs can transform in to wonderful pieces of art as well.

 Beautiful egg shell sculptures by Chinese artist Wen Fuliang.

 Egg carving is done using a fine diamond bit on an electric rotary tool. The artist sketches a design on the shell, which has been carefully emptied of the yolk and egg white with a syringe.

Wen Fuliang , of Shaanxi province, was laid off from his job as a wood carver and turned to the unusual and skillful form of art to make ends meet. He uses chicken, goose and duck eggshells to carve out places of interest, such as the iconic Dayan Pagoda in Xi'an.

The video shows how this delicate art takes shape at the hands of a skilled and passionate sculptor.
