PHEROMONE SPECIMENS

 

Christopher Marley’s shadow-box-framed specimens are perfectly symmetrical so that the insects themselves, and the designs they comprise, evoke feelings of structure, mechanics and form…..an industrial designer’s fantasy rather than an entomological quaqmire.  

Leading environmentalists and entomologists agree that insect collecting can aid in the preservation of species by offering an economic incentive to preserve local habitat and host plants.
