Description

Mounted on 11"x14" white mat in black aluminum frame.

 

This unusual longhorn beetle is one of the world's largest and also its most ornately decorated. For these reasons it is one of the most prized specimens in the world and can fetch thousands of dollars when large enough. Framed here is a standard sized specimen, about 5" long. 

 

All of the organisms used by Christopher in his artwork were thoughtfully, responsibly and viably harvested with regards to preservation of species and respect of life. Each piece is created with careful attention to the flow of negative space, complimentary coloration, and the meticulous preparation and selection of each specimen. Colors are natural and are protected from fading by UV glass. Do not expose any of Christopher's pieces to high humidity or direct sunlight.
