More Beetle Wings

I was talking to a friend last week about the Amazonia necklace, on which I used beetle wings, and she told me about an amazing exhibit she saw in Brussels.  There is a Belgian artist named Jan Fabre who decorated the entire ceiling of the Royal Palace in Brussels using beetle wings, and the results are breath-taking:

He called this work Heaven of Delight and used over one and a half million wings to cover everything. Even the chandelier is covered - amazing!  Check out the detail:

This is about one of the coolest things I’ve seen.  I think someone should decorate ceilings in the NYC subway stations like this!
