Worcester (pronounced "Woo-ster"), also known locally as "Wu, Glorious Wu", is a city and high-street consumer colony of Worcestershire, in the West Middle countryside of England.

The eggs were later depicted in a series of works commissioned by the Vatican and painted by religious artist Salvador Dali. (more...)
