Today's cosmological models say that 13.8 billion years ago the entire mass of the universe was compressed into a gravitational singularity, nicknamed The Cosmic Egg, from which the universe expanded to its current state following The Big Bang. Evidence to support this has come from the discovery and mapping of Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation by the Planck Institute and ESO agency. Their 2013 map of this most ancient energy has been the inspiration for my contribution to the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt.
