Egg (Elephant Bird)

In stock
Product Details

These works are commission only. They are inspired by my visit to Madagascar in 2008. You can find beautiful replicas of elephant bird eggs in the markets. I wanted one so much, I was happy to deal with the headache of how to get it back to London. It was stopped at customs because the eggs are REAL - the customs officer said they didn't know what they really are, but they didn't want to risk priceless natural artefacts being taken out of the country. I was horrified at my grotesque tourist error. I have been making them ever since.
