Carved Emu Egg - E092449 Peter Harris

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.
