The newest member of the Flea Circus is Banjo Beetle. Although none of his Beatles covers have made it to iTunes, he is entertaining.

These one of a kind beetle dioramas have been featured in Apartment Therapy, German television and numerous art blogs. Taking over three days to make with drying times, these insect dioramas also make great pets and conversation pieces. This can be hung on a wall (comes with sturdy hook) or sit on a desk. The beetle stands roughly 1 inch tall. These dioramas are made to order and may take up to one week to ship. Please note every pose is unique and may differ slightly from the picture in this listing.

Frequently asked questions about BugUnderGlass

Like all fine artwork, avoid direct sunlight and extreme humidity.
Yes, please contact me with your idea and I can give you a quote.
My insects come from sustainable conservation farms/ranches around the world. I do not sell rare, endangered or insects recognized as unsustainable (Dragonflies, Bats, rare beetles).
By linking environmental stewardship and economic development, butterfly farming positively impacts threatened habitats as well as human well-being. Currently used by conservation organizations, such as the Nature Conservancy and WWF, Butterfly farming helps save rainforest habitat by providing villagers an alternative income to agricultural farming and logging, which clears tropical forest. for more info Google "butterfly farming"
Since these displays are professionally made using UV blocking glass (so colors won't fade) and archival mounting boards - they can potentially last forever if treated with care. Most sellers are hobbyiest and DO NOT use UV glass or use proper materials - -and they will not last.
