I knew Ostrich eggs were supposed to be thick and strong but until I saw Hand carved ostrich egg by ~joechas I had no idea they could be carved and shaped like this. I have never seen work done like this before and love the careful attention and planning that have gone into this delicate and detailed piece of work, especially when you consider that one slip of the hand could ruin the entire piece.

I've dabbed at pysanky, and the eggs always break on me, and I'm just painting them! Even if it is an ostrich egg, my mind boggles at the delicate work required.

This is an absolutely beautiful piece. You certainly have a gift! Look into Emu eggs, they have a very distinct forest green color on the outside. Amazing work, though! I am going to look for some more!! :D

This is, so far, the only DD I've come across that actually deserved it.

It's an original, creative piece that came out wonderfully.

Most DDs anymore are just a crappy nude shot. ;(
