This is a handmade, one-of-a-kind art sculpture made from gourds. It uses two "dwarf bottle" gourds to form the body and dense wire for the legs and horns. Epoxy clay was used to sculpt the accurate forms of the legs, carapace, and every small detail. It's painted with acrylics and metallic powders, then sealed with moisture-resistant sealer.  A wire is embedded into the belly for wall-hanging, or it can be displayed on a table. ***not for outside display***


Miniature Gourd Beetle #58 is a dynasty hercules beetle. A relative of the common US Hercules beetle, these originate from China and are known for the their long impressive horns and large size. They're common as pets. This sculpture measures 6" tall, 5" wide, and 2.25" long.
