Eggs are extremely symbolic to artist Lin Cassetta. "They represent perpetuity, it's a sacred symbol, and it's probably the best symbol of the strength of femininity," Cassetta said. Her aunt on her father's side of the family had an egg farm which was her happy place; her escape from reality. Cassetta felt safe and at ease there. To this day, Cassetta collects all different types of eggs.
