Note from the Artist:

The Naama Collection

Naama (Arabic for ostrich), inspired this collection’s focus on emulating the simple elegance of ostrich eggs. The ostrich egg appeared in ancient Nubian and Egyptian creation myths as a sign of life and rebirth. The ostrich feather was an emblem of the goddess Maat, goddess of truth. During the final judgement, it is said that the heart of the deceased would be weight against an ostrich feather. Being a symbol of resurrection, ostrich eggs were discovered in Nubian and Egyptian tombs as a kind of funerary offering believe to feed the deceased in the afterlife.
