Embroidered felt taxidermy - small framed beetle

Insects and natural history fascinated the Victorians. Bugs were seen as aesthetically pleasing, embroidered onto clothing, displayed in frames and studied by entomologists. Entomology is the study of insects, an area of science the Victorians popularised. They would display various species of bugs in their homes to show intellect and curiosity with the natural world and women would wear depictions of these creatures as jewellery and embroidered on their clothing.
The beetles are hand embroidered on organic calico with hundreds of tiny glass beads with intricate layers of sequins to create this beautiful blue shiny beetle.
- Frame dimensions: 16cm x 20cm x 2.5cm (6.3 x 7.9 x 0.2 inches)
- Hand made with natural fibres.
