The anatomy of weevils, which are the most diverse animal in the world with over 60,000 different kinds, would make it an excellent banjo player. Seen in Apartment Therapy, High Fructose and Wired Magazine, this classically wonderful shadow box diorama features a real weevil playing a miniature banjo. FYI – It does not know or associate with the Violin Beetle, but believes it would get along (mainly because it eats nuts and not other beetles).
Included in the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum collection Hollywood, CA. Visit the Diorama Museum to see past work.
