A couple are astonished by peeling the shell off a hard-boiled egg and seeing the sunflower pattern ‘artwork’ on the white exterior.

Adeeb Iqbal, 38, and his wife Tanzila, 31, looked like a picture engraved on the egg. Blurred outline of a sunflower emerging from behind a brick wall pattern.

He made this discovery while having breakfast on Tuesday [21] Morning at his home in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.


Community pharmacist Adeeb, who is expecting his second child with his wife, said: “It felt so weird!

“I was sitting with the little one in the kitchen and peeled all three eggs. I didn’t notice until Tanzila sat next to me and paid attention to them.

“He asked me if I noticed there were pictures on the eggs while I was peeling them.

“The most obvious detail was the flower at the top, followed by what looked like a bridge and then a block like a wall. There was a lighter shade of pink in the middle.

“My Mrs made a joke saying if the hen is painting eggs in her belly!

“I have a science degree so I’m always looking at the balance of possibilities.

“The chances of boiling a raw egg and producing a flower of a similar size with different colors and visuals must be very, very few and quite extraordinary.

“It looked beautiful and so cool – like a kid had pulled it off.”

Sadly, the next day the peeled egg faded and Adeeb had no choice but to dispose of his egg—traditional art.
