We’ve decorated this ostrich egg using a mixed medium. What this means, is that we’ve used two different art forms on the egg. The first is decoupage: the animals are a high-resolution image that is glued onto the egg. The egg is then coated with several layers of epoxy. Once it is dry, the egg is sanded to a smooth finish. The rest of the egg is hand-painted to make a completely unique one-of-a-kind piece of art. The egg is finished with several more layers of epoxy, sanding in between each layer. This is what gives the finished product the high gloss, glass-like finish. The eggs we use are non-fertile eggs that would normally be discarded. The egg is emptied and then sterilized, so that there is no animal matter remaining in the shell.

This egg is a whimsical egg. The fierce red dragon is standing on an outcropping of rocks, looking over the tree filled valley below. The dragon has his wings outstretched as if he is getting ready to swoop down.

This egg comes boxed with a standard wooden ring stand, as seen illustrated above. The stands in the other pictures are not included in the purchase price and are available for purchase on our website.

Our eggs and stands are also sold at Disney Animal Kingdom and Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Dragons

A dragon is a large, serpent-like legendary creature that appears in the folklore of many cultures around the world. Beliefs about dragons vary drastically by region, but dragons in western cultures since the High Middle Ages have often been depicted as winged, horned, four-legged, and capable of breathing fire. Dragons in eastern cultures are usually depicted as wingless, four-legged, serpentine creatures with above-average intelligence.
