    Really. Real bugs from all over the world! New artist, Christopher Marley collection called Pheromone. Exclusive in the Midwest to The Afternoon! These are assemblages of real insects with their extraordinary hues intact, natural and unenhanced, placed in an aesthetically intriguing, minimalist form. One is immediately struck by the iridescence in the insect specimens, the result of a phenomenon known as constructive interference (the iridescent surface is comprised of multiple microscopic layers or ridged scales that allow light to be reflected from several surfaces simultaneously). This work is a Coleoptera Mosaic, of which Marley writes: "The Coleoptera Mosaics are a vibrant if modest representation of the stunning hues and diverse shapes and patterns found in the Phylum Arthropoda. Chosen from literally millions of species from every inhabited continent, each Mosaic piece is designed to be as much a tribute to nature’s outrageous diversity as it is a singularly distinctive piece of art. The Coleoptera Mosaics have come to be synonymous with the concept of juxtaposing crisp, elegant design and divinely exotic natural artifacts. Each piece is created with careful attention to the flow of negative space, complimentary coloration, and the meticulous preparation and selection of each specimen. The appendages are tucked under the body so as not to detract in form or reaction from the striking display of nature’s brilliance. Colors are natural and as many are structural instead of pigmented, as durable as any color in the animal kingdom. Museum quality, 8-ply, acid-free mats generously offset the wash of iridescence in deep, architectural, hermetically-sealed frames. Each piece is signed and labeled and no two are exactly alike." As stated, the mosaic you receive will be similar to, but not exactly the same as, the one pictured. 16" x 20.
