Carved Eggs

Since the title of my blog is Eggstraordinary Art, I suppose it is only fitting that I put pictures of my eggs on here well.

This ostrich egg took first place in the experienced filigree category, as well as Best in Show in an international eggshell carving contest  I couldn't begin to calculate how many hours this took.  

It is really hard to photograph, but if you look carefully, you can see that individual jigsaw puzzle pieces were drawn all around the egg and then cut out.  What is left is what would have been the lines of a jigsaw puzzle.  I'm afraid to move it. *grin*
