Ostrich eggshell … It remains something unique … That ostrich eggs are the largest, with an equivalent of 24 to 28 chicken eggs, well, you already knew that. But did you know that our ancestors also used them some 100,000 years ago? It was a source of protein, but in addition, the bowl also served as a palette for their artworks and a way for African hunters to carry water with them. And the eggshell is also perfect for decoration items…
