Its unlikely to be lego given that it is full size. There was footage of it
at the McNeill-Alexander fest that that issue of JExpBiol reports. Its
intended to end up as an interactive, mobile, free-standing museum exhibit.
The egg is (I think) an illustration of the region above which the centre of
gravity has to fall for bipedal static stability. Could be wrong though.
Could be an egg.
