Price: $8000.00
Throughout antiquity, the ostrich was esteemed as a noble bird, prized for its size, its speed, its feathers and its eggs. The pharaohs of Egypt are depicted hunting the ostrich, and fans made from the tail feathers have been valued because of their unusual size and perfect shape. In the Biblical era, the rare eggs were something turned into offering vessels or lamps for sacred shrines. Who gave this gift to some unknown god, hoping to win the favor of the deity? This graceful object acts like a key to the past, opening the doors of the imagination. - (P.2516)
