Beetlemania

Zane YorkZane York‘s superb rhinoceros beetle now joins my natural history wall. (This photo was shot through the glass of the frame, so forgive the reflections.) I’ve known Zane for several years and have written here about his work.

So there are now two beetles on the wall. A throw pillow with a mass-produced beetle pattern usually sits on the couch in front of the wall, so if I get one more beetle in here I’m going to have a band.wallAnd there is more room for additions. A segment of the wall to the right of the turtle shells (curiously, a lot of people seem to think they are tortoise) is above the radiator, so I’d rather not put paper works there. I’m searching for something else, perhaps metal, but I don’t know what yet. The wall is a work in progress.

    That is a very beautiful collection…both in content and arrangement.

    “…so if I get one more beetle in here I’m going to have a band.”

    Thank you for not only my first sight of a “bug” today, but also my first laugh.

    Good morning. To complete your Fab Four homage, suggest you consider etsy.com. As an example, here is a metal sculpture from a Connecticut artist: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124585570/copper-jewel-beetle-metal-wall-sculpture?ref=shop_home_active_12 with whom I have no affiliation. Thank you for the gift of this blog.
