The Margutis Easter egg is a gypsum sculpture crafted by Romas Vilčiauskas in 2001. The giant egg originally stood in Užupis and was symbolic of a revival taking place in the neighborhood.
The egg was originally meant to be a placeholder for another sculpture called the Angel of Užupis. As soon as enough funds were gathered, the angel was to replace the egg.
