Bordeaux-based artist Juliette Clovis is back soon after her latest "Porcelain Eggs" series with new 4 Women Busts «Mechanitis Polymnia», «Millipora», «Black Baccara» and «Sternocera». This last piece was made by the artist during a residency program at The Insect Museum of Nedde (France). More than 500 jewel beetles’ wings were necessary to make this stunning piece where the incredible colours of these wings strongly contrast with the pureness of the porcelain biscuit.
P.s. Note that jewel beetles wings are a product of leftovers from Asian restaurants, they sold it on special fairs to artists like Jan Fabre etc.
