[Table Mountain, Cape Town, South Africa]

c1880s. Two scenes in oil on ostrich egg, 15 x 40cm (height x circumference). Minor paint loss to both scenes.

The view of Tabletop Mountain includes fishing and sailing boats dotting the harbour.

The other scene shows a Cape Malay man wearing geta sandals and carrying two baskets on a shoulder pole. Due to the dissimilarity of these subjects, it is likely this egg was painted by a sailor on his travels.
