Painted Emu Egg
Emu eggs are painted by Australian Aborigines as a craft to offer souvenirs for visitors to their communities. The egg contents
serve as an important
source
of nutrition for people in the bush.

This emu egg has been hollowed and emptied of contents and then painted by an authentic Australian Aboriginal artist in the traditional desert Aboriginal dot technique.

Emu eggs are taken from the nest when the adult emu is distracted and leaves to investigate the source of the distraction, often caused by an emu caller.
