Eupholus Deviation on Graphite (16×20)
Resembling an animated character more than a beetle, Tropical Weevils of the genus “Eupholus” are so brilliantly colored as to be almost comical. In their native New Guinea and Indonesia, weevils are a notorious pest to acorns and nuts, much as they are to grain in North America. For anyone entranced by the brilliant display of colors in the insect world, but squeamish about “bugs”, a benign-looking weevil piece is just the thing.
Each one of my insect mosaics is an original work composed of actual, naturally-colored specimens. No two pieces are exactly alike. Though each is a singular composition, the images shown are representative of the aesthetic quality, design, and size of each piece.
