The ideas behind this insect:
Grasshoppers/crickets are speedy high-jumpers. In swarms, they can defoliate everything in sight with an incredible appetite, in no time. This specimen has “extra boosters” in its legs to highlight its drive and lust for life. The long golden lashes and stunning violet eyes add charm and humour to mitigate the grasshopper’s ravenous reputation.
This piece is an element in a composite artistic work, and is part of the HABITAT project.
Offered for sale with a proviso granting the artist the right to exhibit the sold item.
