Artist Jess Landau
 uses the insides of eggshells as canvases for her delicate nude portraits. Landau embarked on her unusual project because her close friend’s suicide in November 2013, as a way of coming to terms with the loss, Landau try to exploring her experiences and emotions through nonverbal expression.  As she explained in an interview with The Huffington Post:
