These eggs belongs to the Zebra Finch,they are very little
and the size wil do as an Ostrich egg in miniature size.
I turned these stands of wood with hand.
The first Europeans to see an ostrich egg sureley
stopped in their tracks.The size,the texture,the
weight!Instantly it was a Kunstkammer hit,added
to exotic shells and spiral narwhale teeth,skulls and
feathers.Worth their weight in gold in the 17th C.,
famous sculptors were commisioned to mount them
on baroque stands embellished with rubies and
diamonds.Never having lost the magic of their fluid
beauty,they now fit perfectly in the cabinet of
Nautilus on stand,and real tiny Urchin shells!
This unicorn horn was a gift to me by Debby,
(narwhale theeth).She makes the most amazing mini's
and I love it all! Take a look at her site she is a real artist!
