Antique Beetle Poster

Antique Beetle Poster

#27052

An antique zoology illustration poster of a beetle and all of the stages from egg to an adult insect. These American and European natural sciences illustrations became very popular from the 17th to 19th century, originally for scientific identification and use, but later spread to artistic and aesthetic appreciation. The frame also lends some beauty to this life cycle art illustration, orange-reds, yellow-golds, and umber browns streak through the framing emulating the soil the egg and child come from before flying off in the last part of the beetle life cycle.
