When weaver bird’s eggs, which are a beautiful blue, are hatching, one finds many broken eggshells under the trees. From time to time one can find an unhatched egg. The scale, beauty, simplicity and vulnerability makes the little blue egg a symbol of that which is precious. The self-portrait as a toddler in the background of the painting is linked, by a similar idea, to the little blue egg in the large, dark bowl.
