Introduction: Scrimshaw Daisy on Cutaway Rhea Egg Shell
I have always been impessed with scrimshaw as an artform. We can see examples that are hundreds of years old and fantastic pieces made currently. It is an enduring part of humanity that crosses many nationalities and eras. I have rendered a daisy on the side of a Rhea egg shell and then removed as much as possible of the remaining shell so the daisy is the primary image. The overall thought I had when designing this would be a daisy against a fence or leaded window.
