Cigar Box Macros

100.00

This set of cigar box prints includes four images that are from a project that I did for the University of Kansas Natural History Museum. For the project, I photographed a variety of bugs, fish, rocks, and other tiny objects. These are four of my favorite images from the project.

The image of the seahorse and the two fish show a process called “staining and clearing” where the entire specimen is treated with a series of chemicals that simultaneously preserve it, render its soft tissues transparent, and stain its skeletal and nervous systems different colors.

The other two images show the intricate patterns and colors of a grasshopper’s wing and the unbelievably beautiful metallic armor of an orchid bee.

These prints were custom printed in my studio on cotton fiber paper with 100 year inks and hand signed. They are 8 1/2” x 8 3/4” in size and are individually sealed in archival sleeves and packaged in this wooden cigar box. This is a one of a kind set. Only one exists.

* If you’d like a set of these prints in a different size, please feel free to contact me. I’m happy to make a custom sized set for you*
