Hatched


I'm not really sure what I have here, these three objects appear to be little bits of iridescent rock glued to construction paper.

Found in "Horton Hatches The Egg" by Dr. Seuss. Published by Random House, 1940.

I guess we can only speculate as to the reason why these bits of shell were glued to the paper.
