351. Entomology Skull

Arranged Insects (approx. 10in x 15in [25cm x 38cm]). Thanks to my friend Laura at Main Art Supply and Framing (the locally owned store where I buy most of the fine art supplies used in this project!) who let me play with her collection of butterflies, moths, and assorted other insects. You can see how she uses them HERE.

P.S. Since a friend of mine asked, these were mostly found by Laura after they had died, or were given to her by friends who found them.

I like the fact that the skull(symbol of death) is made from formerly live things. It would be like making a skull out of my night life after I had kids.

Would make a great poster/print

This is stunning. Reminds me of Damien Hirst's butterfly wing windows.

Noah, thanks so much. This turned out super great. Let me know if you need "bug wrangling" for any future projects!!!

This is brilliant! You are such a major inspiration for any of us who have ever suffered from creativity blocks. It is almost unimaginable that someone can do this day after day 7 days a week and not run out of ideas! Thank you so much. Your site is one of the only ones I absolutely visit every single day (unless I am gone). Peace and many blessings, Annie
