An ostrich egg was used in this design. I spray painted the ostrich egg with four colors to simulate Mother of Pearl. When the door opens, the electric music box begins to play “Some Enchanted Evening” and the floor lamp lights the room. Three LED’s were installed behind the wall, when a button is pushed, you see behind the one-way mirror to the little girl all grown up and in her wedding gown.
This egg won 1st Place in the Diorama category at the San Antonio Egg Show in 2008.
