Insect Taxidermy

I have countless insect specimens pinned or set in frames for display, but a while ago I decided to have a go at creating an Insect version of the traditional taxidermy set-ups, which usually display birds on a branch, or in flight etc.
The display is around 14" high, and has many small beetles, but the large showy ones are a male and female pair of Goliathus orientalis preussi (An African flower beetle) and a male Atlas beetle, probably Chalcosoma atlas.


  1. I love this so much!!! That beetle dome is probably one my favourites of your room accessories! That Goliathus is amazing! :D

  2. I'm kind of obsessed with this...and really everything you do. Do you sell any of your work? Because I need this (or something like it) in my collection.
