The Easter Egg "Resurrection of Christ" (1895-1899)
The Resurrection egg is a jeweled enameled and rock crystal Easter egg made by Michael Perchin under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Carl Fabergé between 1895 and 1899. The egg depicts Jesus rising from his tomb, and is the only Fabergé egg to explicitly reference the Easter story.

There is no surprise in this egg, possibly because it is a surprise itself. Long considered a Fabergé egg, it does not bear an inventory number. It has been postulated that the Resurrection egg is the missing surprise from the Renaissance egg.
