Dr Lyall's Fairy

Unidentified specimen collected by David Lyall 4/10. 1842. Glenshee, Scotland






Sorry for the delay, but I had to update this one before posting it here, This is now the third (and hopefully last) fairy to go in the jar, all improvements have been made and I'm very pleased with the result. For me It illustrates mans brutal relationship with nature and occupies the paradoxal (and utterly fascinating) line between science and magic.

  1. This is beautiful! I love it, the wings and closed eyes are such a great touch, I have a lizard in a jar similar to this who has that same look...amazing!
