I'm excited to be adding more arthropods to my repertoire; this piece uses a rhinoceros beetle as a point of departure. 

I haven't measured him yet but my hand provides some scale

-this is a sculpture made of clay/wire/paint/mediums, no actual animal (or plant) parts were used

This piece will be for sale on Saturday September 29th.  To see the sale of this and 9 other sculptures you can join my notification list on my dote com (see below)

Wow. I love it. Just amazing. I especially love the combination of textures, from the hard glossy shell to the soft flower petals. Super work.

Notes the text "no actual animal (or plant) parts were used" and thinks "That's a relief, don't want to meet that (sized) beetle outside" XD
Absolutely amazing work! I especially notice the lovely flow going on with the flowers.

That's the most disturbing, and at the same time the majestic bug i've ever seen.
