Musa and the Stag
About - Fine Art Print
This print is a professional reproduction of the original painting Musa and the Stag from the Natural Oology collection (originals as yet unreleased).
My neighbour is an entomologist and fellow creative - she lent me some beetle species from her collection for me to paint! One of these specimens was a Green Stag beetle, native to Southeast Asia. I had also just been to the museum and bought a book that contained some botanical prints. I used the print, Musa by Christoph Trew (1695-1769) as the base for my work, and painted the stag beetle on top of it.
