Product Description:

This nice carving of a kangaroo with tall background grass was purchased in 1976 by the parents of friends of Dogbotz Boneyard co-owner Patrick Price. The sculpted kangaroo image covers about 85 percent of one side of the emu egg. The rough grayish surface of the natural egg covers the reminder. Prior to folks in the United States breeding emus to sell their eggs, only the aboriginal tribal peoples of Australia, such as the Maori, were allowed to collect wild emu eggs for food and making art.

This emu egg sculpture is in excellent vintage condition. The egg should be placed in a lighted area so that the carved kangaroo can be easily seen. The details of animal and grass are stunning. The egg itself bears no damage.

This fabulous emu egg carving has been very well cared for and presents spectacularly. In addition, this delightful piece would do well as a unique gift for a family member or friend, and it would enhance any living room, library or office décor. Finally, if you appreciate and collect the craftsmanship of native peoples from around the world, or if you specifically collect indigenous Australian artifacts, this charming piece would add great value to your collection.
