This one is 1m square, gold leaf, ink, pen and gold embossing, also some real insect wings on her eyelids and under her chin. The writing down the side is Hindi and translates (hopefully!) to 'no creature is insignificant, no matter how small'. This is preceded by 'The Ornithologist' and I hope to continue with this thread for a while. It was inspired by the idea that bees and other insects play such an important role in the ecosystem and how stuffed we would be without them. Ants can be annoying when they take over the pantry and flies are a pain in the bum etc but at the end of the day we need all this stuff and they are there to do a job so best try and live alongside them :) I hope you enjoy the closeups. I am hoping to film a new youtube video this week so that always fun trying to edit with my pitiful skills, cheers!
