Beaded Fat Beetle from the Cabinet of Curiosity
These curious creatures are hand embroidered on organic calico using golden threads and decorated with tiny brass and coloured glass beads. The frame is a hand made wooden box frame finished in matte black.
Hundreds of tiny glass beads and intricate layers of sequins applied with tremendous skill...and patience.. map out the colours and patterns of the super shiny beetle. Padded from behind this forms the plum domed body of the creature It is then mounted in a box frame with a fun archivist Latin description denoting the genus of the beastie!
A gentleman's cabinet of curiosities full of strange specimens and worldly objects must have been truly fascinating! Natural history collections are undoubtably very beautiful, inspired we have created our own archive of creatures...but in a kind to nature, Sew Heart Felt way!
