Buttercup & Thick-legged Flower Beetle - i118 Kit

by Victoria Matthewson

Superb silk embroidery study of a beetle and blossom.



The centre of the bright yellow, meadow buttercup is full of pollen and a valuable food source for the thick-legged flower beetle, which spends its spring days drifting from flower to flower.

Displaying the swollen femora and bright green colouring of the male beetle, this magnificent specimen, with its rich metallic covering, is exquisitely stitched with fine, filament silk threads onto ivory silk dupion, making a splendid companion to its favourite food source.
