This one-of-a-kind sculpture is made from a real cicada exoskeleton! Each exoskeleton is carefully selected for its size and shape. The exoskeleton is then delicately cleaned, hand-painted, sealed, and permanently affixed into a sleek black jewelry box. They are archival and can be shown on table-tops as a unique centerpiece, or as part of a fine art collection. This is the perfect gift for nature lovers and entomology enthusiasts!

Each sculpture is part of a fine art series titled "Exuvia," and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which is signed and dated by the artist. Just like fingerprints, no two exoskeletons are the same, making each sculpture unique. Each exoskeleton is harvested humanely by the artist; no insects are harmed in the making of the work.

PLEASE NOTE: This sculpture is not made of actual gold. It is made of a real cicada exoskeleton, and is naturally fragile. Each exoskeleton is permanently pinned into a portable jewelry box for handling purposes. Only ever handle the sculpture by the jewelry box, and never attempt to remove from the box.

If your sculpture is somehow damaged during shipment, please contact me and I will happily send you a replacement.

Every year I get my husband a rose made of a different material for Valentine’s Day. This is a perfect addition! It looks exactly as pictured.

I would not be surprised if these become quite iconic as they are a fabulous fresh take on a classic image that indeed says more than any common rose could. I’m hoping to put some of these in my gallery as I think they make a perfect gift for a loved one and I foresee there being a lot of interest in them.
