Amethyst Iridescent Beetle
Framed Amethyst Iridescent Beetle
Size cm: 12 W, 17 H, 2.7 D
Metallic detail: precious metal gilding
Faux glass in frame: yes
A glittering beetle adorned with a flash of blue iridescence, mounted in a rich frame. The piece is inspired by the antiquarian practice of Entomology collection. This contemporary twist on the practice is entirely cruelty free, as all specimens are handmade from clay. The framed specimens look very striking on a wall or displayed on a shelf. Each piece is signed and dated. The frame can be wall mounted with a screw or picture hook. It also has an arm, so can stand as a photo frame would- you just need to carefully rotate the backboard. The insects in this piece are preserved behind faux glass.
