Jewels of the Rainforest
The Victorians loved creating beautiful displays of exotic birds encased in glass for their parlors. Most of these works of art are now lost to time, but this piece by Allis Markham plays on that historic art, with a modern geometric flair.
The Jewels of the Rainforest features three South American birds who are known to frolic through the rainforest canopy together: The Paradise Tanager, Red-legged Honey Creeper and the Green Honeycreeper. These delicate birds and their exotic colors truly pop against the natural environment of leaves and twisting vines. This piece is truly a museum diorama for your own parlor.
Also included in the dome, are real native insects from the rain forest, also ethically collected. A large Stag Beetle creeps along the ground while a delicate Glass Butterfly lands delicately on a vine. There are truly many things to discover in this ornate but modern piece.
The geometric dome itself stands 26" high and 10" at it's widest point. It is built of real copper metal frame and glass.
Ground shipping calculated at check-out and will be coordinated with Prey Taxidermy. Sorry, no international shipping at this time. Bird specimens were collected from natural deaths at an aviary. Insects are from an ethical insect collector approved by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
