Carved Emu Egg - Hunter with Spear

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 an emu. If you look closely you can see the Southern Cross setting behind the hunter.
