Ostrich Eggs Painting

The ostrich egg painting is an ancient art, and

now mostly found in the African continent.
Ostrich egg decoration has, for example, a long
story in South Africa. The oldest decorated
eggshells were discovered in a South African cave
and date back to 60 000 years ago. Decorated
ostrich eggs are found in almost all the ancient
cultures of Africa, of the Near, Middle, and the
Far East. The ostrich eggshell is very strong and
durable. The average size is 15 cm long and 13 cm
wide. The shell thickness is about 2 millimeters.
The net capacity is a little more than 1 liter.

In Africa, ostrich eggs were commonly used as

water flask, as hunter-gatherers of South
African desert do even today. Due to its
resistance, the shell can be not only painted but
also engraved and carved: the natural color of
ostrich eggs is creamy, so scratches let appear
the white layer underneath and create a design. A
typical product of South Africa is the engraved
and carved ostrich eggs turned into lamps.
Ostrich was a very common animal in the
Prehistoric Middle East and Africa. Neolithic
petroglyphs of the Jordanian Badia show ostriches
hunting scenes.
