Sculpture and Ecofauna

What comes after a giant foam lion?

Big Bugs! 
Not as big as a Japanese sci-fi movie, but way too large for most folk. These sculptures are scientifically accurate reproductions of insects from around the world.
Visit Ecofauna's website to see more.
Ecofauna was created in 1996 in Italy by Lorenzo Possenti  a sculptor with Natural Sciences degree.

Real insect (bottom center) and 20 times enlarged 
Do you have a favorite insect ?
