An In-Depth Look at Art’s In­tri­ca­cies

Where Las Vegas - - THE GUIDE -

Known for the ex­quis­ite eggs that opened to re­veal an in­tri­cate sur­prise inside, the House of Fabergé’s sig­na­ture pieces were de­signed for the Rus­sian im­pe­rial fam­ily from the late 19th and early 20th cen­turies. Iron­i­cally, it was dur­ing the fall of this fam­ily that the eggs be­came cov­eted as ob­jects of art. The Bel­la­gio Gallery of Fine Art’s lat­est ex­hibit, Fabergé Re­vealed, showcases 238 rare Fabergé cre­ations, such as im­pe­rial eggs, mini eggs, pen­dants, cane knobs, um­brella han­dles, jew­elry and more. In ad­di­tion to a tes­ta­ment to cre­ativ­ity, it’s a fas­ci­nat­ing look at the per­sis­tence of art, as the minute de­tail of th­ese cre­ations is ab­so­lutely breathtaking.

Open daily from 10 am-7 pm. Ex­hibit

runs through May 15, 2015. Bel­la­gio,
