The plant egg
About 2.5 meters high, this giant-size plant egg is made of two parts: the lower part is covered with Iceland Moss (Cetraria islandica), which distinguishes itself sharply from local lichens by its light-grey color, while the sculpture’s upper part is decorated with blossoming spring and summer plants. The iron frame of the egg was forged in the municipal smithy. The sculpture is set into a small flowerbed.

Location: in a flowerbed in front of the Kurhaus
Created by Merano’s Town Gardeners (Stadtgärtnerei) and the smiths of the Bauhof smithy
