On the crossing of Pylimo, Šv. Stepono and Raugyklos streets, stands a sculpture of the egg. Previously this part of the city was very busy because of the bird market situated next to „the egg“. Bird market was the point of attraction for people from all around the Vilnius precincts.

During „Sienamiescio dominijos“ district reconstruction, an ancient pavement was found ,later it was agreed that it should be reconstructed. This public garden with a sculpture in the middle reminds people its historical past.

This sculpture was a present from the republic of Užupis. The egg weighs about 300 kg and was completely built in 2003. A couple of times it was painted during the Easter day celebration.
