Wow... thats some fancy egg-art.

I mean, seriously puts the eggs we used to paint at Easter to shame for a start.

Interestingly enough, I was watching a documentary on the History channel about eggs at work, which ended by talking about a certain egg sculptor in...I think it was Oregon...

This is made from an egg???? Wow!!! I am really impressed. And how appropriate since Africa is the birthplace of all life (at least according to some of the more popular evolution theories).

Ah. It's an ostrich egg. I spent a minute or so looking at this and scratching my head going "How on earth did they work THAT freaking small? And how did they not break anything, since eggs break if you so much as gently tap them against a countertop?".
It's still incredibly impressive, but now makes sense how it's possible. Took me a moment to figure it out. I know I couldn't do that, ostrich egg or not. XD
