Ostrich Egg w/ World Map & Black Band | Handcrafted Sculptures | Co...
In the tradition of the coveted painted ostrich eggshells of ancient Nubia, this antique world map is reproduced with wonderful coloration that comes from approximately fifty layers of lacquer. Only unfertilized emptied shells are used, and each is unique in size and shape. This one is approximately 4 ½" diameter x 7"h. The bronze-painted Atlas stand (J1258, sold separately) is 6 ¼"h -- the egg stands 5" higher with it than without.
