Intricate carvings on ostrich eggs by Gil Batle

Before becoming an artist, the American of Filipino descent Gil Batle was sentenced to spend years in prison for fraud and forgery, where he learned to draw and tattoo. These two abilities helped him to stay away from the problems and abuses that occurred daily around him in prison.

Finally free, after 20 years of imprisonment, Batle moved to his parents’ country and began his work with ostrich egg carving. His marvelous and intricately elaborate pieces depict the stories of the people he came to know in the times of seclusion.
