Extravagant Emu Egg Awards 2003

Carved/Etched/Sculpted
Emu eggs are unique in that they are actually three layers of color.  The innermost is white, then there is a lovely teal or light green, finally a dark green coat.  As the artist carves into the layers, he reveals these colors and utilizes them to give depth to his work.  All artwork on these pages is copyrighted by both Emu's Zine (with rights reverting to the artist) and the artist creating the artwork.  This includes photographs of the artwork.  Contact the individual artists for permission before reproducing their artwork for any reason.

"Cross & Vine Nightlight"

This emu egg has vines with leaves cut out of it with the shape of the cross cut out of the center which allows light from nightlight to shine through.   The cord comes out through the round paper mache box it is resting on which has been covered in a brocade material.

Pharaohs' Horses

From the Painting "Pharaohs' Horses"
This painting has been in controversy for years regarding the original artist.  Two paintings came into the public at the same time, one done by a named artist and one found in a garage sale by an unknown artist.  Controversy comes in due to neither painting being proven to be the original.  Who inspired who? Artists of many different fields have since used this beautiful image in their work.
The artist has recreated the image on an emu egg using all layers of color in the shell.

"Lewis & Clark - 200 Years"

 Exploration of the Louisiana Purchase was ordered by President Thomas Jefferson in 1803 and took approximately 3 years.  Guided for part of the 8,000 mile journey by Sacagawea, a Shoshone woman, the Lewis and Clark Expedition not only mapped 2/3 of the American continent, it provided the first scientific descriptions of 178 plants and 122 animals. This salute to the 200 year anniversary of the event utilizes all layers of color in the emu egg shell.
