A Sliceform Egg - Math, Art and Engineering Intersecting at its Best

Egg Sliceform
While you might think that this is just a smaller version of the Easter Egg Snow Globe from a previous post, it is not.  I could not reduce the size of the egg snow globe because everything including the slits would be reduced. Thus making the slits impossible to use. I created this egg sliceform with two shapes joined together - a circle and a parabola.

Here is the PDF.

Here is the .Studio file.  I used a good quality cardstock because the slits are small and require a paper that will cut precisely.

I love how the egg lies flat and the slices intersect.  
Math, Art and Engineering intersecting at its Best!
