This ostrich egg has been carved and painted with pink, lilac, blue, and green hydrangea blossoms.

I used a very high speed drill to carve detail into the egg shell and carved through the egg shell in places to add depth and to highlight the delicacy of the petals.

After I finished all the carving (which took so long I can't remember!) I then painted the blossoms with acrylic paint to show all the colors of the hydrangeas in my garden. I did this egg during the summer of 2001 when my hydrangea bush was at its most brilliant! It is signed and dated.

This is one of the largest eggs I have carved as it stands over 6 inches tall and is more than 5 1/2 inches wide. It has been sealed so will never fade.

The egg comes with a clear acrylic stand that is favored by the galleries where I show my eggs.

The ostrich egg shells come from a farm in South Africa and are unfertilised so no ostrich chicks were harmed when the eggs were gathered.

The egg will be sent in a box inside a very sturdy box lined with polystyrene to add strength. I have sent eggs as far away as England so your egg will be safe on its journey to you!


In the event that shipping is less than I have quoted I will refund the difference, if over $1.00.
