Some time ago I purchased a few giant (multi-yolk) goose eggs from Kathy Lamb at The Eggery Place. As part of the demonstrations I offered at the Great Salt Lake Woodcarvers Club Annual Carving Show I started working on a pattern on one of those huge goose eggs. I also worked on a few other projects so the visitors could see various techniques. As I was carving the giant goose egg the thought occurred to me that it would be a good idea to finish it on Easter Sunday which was fast approaching.
I also realized that I could not just show a photo of the egg by itself as there would no way for the viewer to have a perspective for its size. This first photo shows two normal goose eggs from 2 different species of geese. I included a ruler so you can see the size of these normal eggs. I removed the ruler after the first photo thinking to keep the distractive elements to a minimum. The stands and the normal goose eggs were not moved for the second photo. The legs of this pattern are roughly 1/16th of an inch wide. So with this latest creation (my 2013 Easter Egg) I wish to all those in my life a Happy Easter!
