HAND CARVED/ETCHED EMU EGGS
Emu egg carving first became popular in the mid to late nineteenth century.  Both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists practised the art, with some silversmiths designing elaborate and ornate contraptions to hold the eggs.   Carving on these beautiful eggs continues today with dozens of artists depicting important animals, people, traditions and scenes from the past or present. 
 
Emu Eggs have three distinct layers, each of a different color. The outside layer is dark green. The middle layer is teal, and the inside layer is nearly white. Occasionally there is a fourth layer, which is thin and rather gray, between the outside layer and the teal layer. When carving of the Emu Eggs I try to use the colors of each layer to their best advantage. Carving the eggshell can take 20 to 60 hours or more depending upon the complexity of the design.
