The explanation of the perfect forms in nature is a subject which has attracted a great attention since the beginning of our civilization. E.g., despite the longstanding interest in the shapes of the eggs, the available parametric descriptions in the modern literature are given only via purely empirical formulas without any clear relationships with their measurable parameters. Here we are exploring another geometrical model suggested by G. Brandt long time ago but which has not received any proper treatment. Actually, it is based on fourth order plane algebraic curve for which we have derived several parameterizations. The most interesting of them is the uniformization of the curve via the Jacobian elliptic functions. Some comparisons with the experimental results were made but this subject deserves further investigation.
