Most Glorious Insect Collection
Size cm: 42cm W, 32cm H, 3cm D
Metallic detail: Mixed Precious Metal Guilding
Faux glass in frame: Yes
The very first insect collection in a rich dark frame. This piece is particulary special. It features insects that have not been made since the great swarm of 2012. The beautiful and enchanting beetle collection has been carefully gilded with precious metals to sparkle mysteriously from across the room. 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. The insects in this piece are preserved behind faux glass.
