Facts:  Rhea eggs measure about 130 × 90 mm (5.1 × 3.5 in) and weigh 600 g (21 oz) on average; they are thus less than half the size of an ostrich egg. Their shell is greenish-yellow when fresh but soon fades to dull cream when exposed to light. The incubation period is 29–43 days. All the eggs hatch within 36 hours of each other even though the eggs in one nest were laid perhaps as much as two weeks apart.

    The ones you describe as muscle tissue or whatever remind me strongly of a web of neurons in our nervous system. These are amazing. What a phenomenal talent you have! Thank you for sharing!

    Well done!! You have reached a similar picture in your mind as I had when I created them.

    The first oil and water one made me think more of the patterns of a giraffe. Have you considered maybe rainforest ideas yet? Maybe it is something to consider? Love you Brian!
