That list of the weirdest U2 crafts that Rashas wrote about a few days back was obviously written before anyone saw this.
That’s Bono done up in the shape of a giant egg … an egg that also happens to be up for auction this month. If you’re in Dublin during the next couple weeks, you’ll find this at the St. Stephen’s Green shopping center, near the site of the old Dandelion Market.
It’s part of a charity event called The Big Egg Hunt, which has 100 big eggs scattered around Dublin and on display prior to a live auction on March 23rd. The winning online bidder doesn’t automatically get the egg; s/he wins a chance to attend and bid during the live auction. All proceeds benefit the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.
The Bono egg is the work of well-known Dublin caricature artist Niall O’Laughin, who’s appeared on @U2 before.
Great thanks to Gary Paul in Dublin for the photo!
