Specimen #01130, 5/28/2001
Wingspan: 8 inches
Composition: Sterling silver wire, black copper wire,
steel linoleum knife blades
Collection site: Mare Tranquilis
Comments: I used a blowtorch to create the iridescence
on the carbon steel wings. The intensity is totally dependent
on the light and the viewing angle. This is my largest insect
sculpture, to date.
