On Easter Sunday, children in many parts of the world will be enjoying chocolate Easter eggs. A specialist in this product, and an artist in their decoration, is M. Jose Pedro Franchiolo of Paris.
Large and small Easter eggs fill his shop on the Avenue de Laumiere. Beautifully decorated and tied with colourful bows they entice young and old to take a mouth watering peep.
But to M. Franchiolo, decorating Easter eggs is a work of art. In his skilful hands the icing bag becomes a painter's brush or a sculptor's chisel. Two monster eggs in his shop illustrate the loving care this master craftsman lavishes on his creations, they bear portraits of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, and Mrs Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of the American President.
