Art on Ground

Eggs mark the spot in the town of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands.
These sunny-side-up creations are the work of Dutch artist Henk Hofstra.
His Art-Eggcident is open to all in the town’s Wilhelmina Square.
The eight fried eggs have a diameter of 7.5 meters.
Some have a bulging yolk 2.3 meters high.
Members of the public have come out of their shell to engage with the artworks.
The eggs will fry in the sun for the next six months..
.. while breakfast lovers get to admire his extraordinary talent.
Hostra’s eggs follow another exhibition that brightened up Dutch streets.
Moleneind in Drachten was sprayed as part of the Blue Road project.
Four thousand litres of paint were used to cover a kilometre of road.
The creation formed an urban river and traced the path of a waterway that used to run where the road now is.
The slogan ‘Water Is Life’ was written on the road in 8m-high letters.
Hostra said it would provide fun for users of Google Earth..
.. and bring life back to the center of Drachten.
