"The fragility of an eggshell appealed to me as a unique medium to test my creativity. I can switch over easily from painting to carving to calligraphy to etching on the egg shell and the scope seems to be unlimited," Sayeed said. (Text: PTI/Photo: Facebook/Farha Sayeed)

She also said that over the years, she has attempted introducing Indian motifs and calligraphy into her art. (Text: PTI/Photo: Facebook/Farha Sayeed)

A part of proceeds from the sale at the exhibition will go to the America-India Foundation's Maternal and New Born Survival Initiative (MANSI), the statement said. (Text: PTI/Photo: Facebook/Farha Sayeed)
