"The egg affirms life, the germ and first principle of everything...but biological life in time passes away, becoming spirit. In death the shape remains only in silence - eternal all-encompassing silence. Complete silence would be maddening to man as he knows it is death. The symbolic value of the egg is that it emphasizes newness and spiritual rebirth. Death and silence were always part of my expression." -Clarence Holbrook Carter, Philbrook Art Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma, March 1975
