"Homage to the 'Umble Egg"
This is a piece that began as a part for a toy I was making. When I saw how truly striking it is on its own, I decided that it's better for looking at than for playing with. So, I present "Homage to the 'umble Egg". It's 3" Tall and about 1-1/2" in diameter. It's made of African Zebrawood and finished in shellac. It's just a pretty thing to dress up a small space in your home or office, no more uselful, really, than a pet rock. Though it just occurred to me that it could be a paperweight, I guess. Naw. It's art for art's sake.Why justify it? Beauty's in the eye of the beholder, innit? It's rife with symbolism.
