DescriptionDino Bone Eggs (Set of 5)
Stone Source: Utah
Artist: Dieter Jerusalem
This set of five chicken-size "eggs," out of Dinosaur Bone, were carved by Dieter Jerusalem. He is from Idar-Oberstein, Germany, carving capital of Europe. Two of the eggs are lighter in color, with an almost speckled pattern of lighter tan and brown, two are darker in color, with sections of visibly porous "gem" bone, and one has a "patchwork" of reddish, yellowish-gold, and greenish regions. This set of five lapidary pieces comes with a clear custom beveled acrylic linear base, about the size of a ruler, so each egg can sit in its semicircle cradle. The work displays in a line over 11 inches (28 cm) in length.
