Specimen #01125, 4/17/2001

Length: 2.5 inches (body length)

Composition: 12 karat gold filled wire, copper wire, green niobium wire, stainless steel #11 scalpel blades

Collection site: Keukenhof Gardens, Netherlands

Comments: The combination of warm copper with gold and green feels very pastoral to me. Grasshoppers are pretty sweet and harmless... but I had to give this one an eventful name. Just had to.
