Wow, some beautiful carved gourd on the website! I didn't know people even did that, thanks for opening up something new to me!

Yes, it's gorgeous.  The colours remind me of the ancient egyptians.

Thanks, y'all. The hardest part is the cleaning prep - getting the two layers of membrane out of the inside of the eggshell. (Oh yeah, and the cleaning of the gourd inside and out.)
