Truly a fascinating and amazing artifact. Some of my friends actually believed that it was a genetically modified embryo (too funny). May purchase another. Just one area of caution, do not leave on your desk if you have pets that jump or climb (cats!!!). They think its prey. The manufacturers may think of redesigning the pedestal, the seat or saddle is too shallow, if it were slightly deeper the egg would rest more securely. Otherwise, a very fine product.
