    Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.

    Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.

Look who I just found on my wall! It’s a House Centipede. Very beneficial, as they eat cockroaches and the like… And totally harmless. I hope he’s just passing on through, as they are wandering predators, and not that there is a food source in our home. Either way, I’m grateful for this little natural exterminator!
