Real praying mantis and botanical mosaic wall hanging


All items are handmade and are one of a kind from foraged wild and domesticated plants. I collect whatever is in season on my daily walks, usually in the Philadelphia area. The composition of my pieces range from traditional (using whole, pressed flowers and leaves) to more abstract. Each piece involves laying jewelry-grade resin in several layers, over several sittings.

6 by 6 inch (4.5 inch inner frame) backed multi media piece in natural wood frame. Consists of layered cyanotype (backdrop), a botanical mosaic tiles, and a real adult praying mantis hugging a dried rose stem. Made with eco friendly resin. All pieces are real, foraged by me, and pressed to retain color. Can be hung on the wall, or placed on a tabletop (I do not provide a hook, but one can be easily attached.) 1.5 inches deep.
