Carved Emu egg with Miniature Orchids

Emu eggs are a natural dark green and about six inches tall and 3 inches across. On the top two thirds I carved out pieces of shell to form a lattice pattern and the bottom one third is carved to look like a basket. I then used a copper paint in the design carved into the egg. There are 78 full flowers, 45 buds and two leaves for each. All are glued in the cross braces of the latticework in a small hole drilled into the egg.
