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!
