Egg Colored by Gradients

This Easter egg is colored with the gradients built into Mathematica 6. It is the first in a series created to entertain Cramer family children. The idea of putting mathematical designs on Easter eggs originated with the author's son, Peter, and was greeted with enthusiasm by the author's daughter, Elizabeth. (See also: Demonstrations by John G. Cramer, Jr., the author's father.)
