Carved Emu Egg - Kangaroo

E.92449, emu egg carved by Peter Harris. This egg illustrates traditional hunting practices by showing a hunter with a spear waiting for game at dawn on one side, and on the back, a kangaroo.

Peter Harris learned to carve emu eggs by watching master Wiradjuri carver Sam Kirby.
