As seen on Apartment Therapy and in Wired magazine, this is another one of my classic, wonderfully weird shadow box dioramas featuring a REAL weevil beetle playing a miniature banjo. Not to be confused with the Violin Beetle. This well preserved weevil beetle has the most amazing natural colors that makes it really exquisite to look at, and it has been sealed and framed with UV conservation glass so your specimen won’t fade.
Since these are all handmade, the pose of the beetle may differ slightly from the photo shown here.
