Painted Eggshell

The painted eggshell is a kind of ornamental artwork, which has tremendous appreciative value. Use the abandoned eggshells of the Bird Island as materials and then paint all kinds of claborate-style paintings or colorful patterns on them. Every summer, dozens of types of birds, such as, spotted-head wild goose, brown-head wild goose, brown-head gull and cormorant fly to the Bird Island in Qinghai. The number of them can reach several ten thousand. They lay eggs and hatch on the island. A large number of nestlings come out from the eggshells. However, because many bird eggs can’t be hatched and kicked out of the nests, they become the abandoned eggs. These useless eggs are the best materials for making painted eggshells. The handicraftsmen draw all kinds of patterns on the empty eggshell, such as, “Return from Hunting in Mount Kunlun”, Grazing in Mount Qilian”, “Headstream of the Yellow River”, Princess Wencheng, King Gesa’er, Buddha statues of the Ta’er Temple, and some animals li
