Dinosaur Egg Nest
This stellar cluster of eggs from a dinosaur called the egg thief.
The `Egg Thief` as it is called in Latin, because it was first thought that this bird-like creature stole the eggs of other dinosaurs but, then changed when it was discovered to be brooding its own eggs. Oviraptor, was the most bird-like of the non-avian dinosaurs. This dinosaur was featured on the Discovery Channel and in the movie �The Land Before Time�. This is an extraordinary grouping of eggs that would start any conversation! Found in a matrix of mother rock, this nest of three eggs from 75 million years ago is in very recognizable condition! Watch! You may see them begin to hatch!
About the Artist, Mother Nature
Mother Nature began her esteemed art career billions of years ago. She designs her art using special effects of time, heat and pressure….. Volcanic eruptions, mountains built from continents smashing into one another and even the slow layering of sand, silt, sea plants and animals creating new stone at the ocean’s floor. Some of her favorite creations are life turned to fossils, mineral crystals crafted into geodes, gemstones and an exquisite marble bearing the colors of a peacock! · Where there was once sea, she built land all while turning sea forms into fossils….. Caught in time are fish swimming among ferns….. where they once trolled the lake shores now they are forever etched in stone... · Her works include mineral crystals and gems born from the heat and pressure of volcanic eruptions. · In an instant of the geological clock, she showers the earth with meteorites condensed from the heavens. Mother Nature's art forms are numerous and wonderful to behold. Touchstone Gallery brings you a wide variety of her very best creations gathered from around the world.
