A cream colored ostrich egg with bands of incised carving, suggesting Egyptian influence. The carving is in three bands: the top suggests hieroglyphics; the middle shows figures in action hunting, boating, etc. as well as one motif showing three peaks- possibly the pyramids; the bottom band shows a repeated figure wearing a turban.
