I thought as I was in the art trail I'd better look some of the others participating I got to no 20 on the trail as a couple rushed off saying they're real. When I look at the things in the cases what I at first thought were replicas of bugs are real bugs with some stones glued to legs or claws

I know art comes in many forms  but dead animal  no matter how many jewel they have on the. Don't  appeal to me and I think the lady had a phobia  with insects

I would have legged it as well Paul.   Over the last few weeks I have been finding spiders in the bath and the kitchen sink.   You know the kind with the little round body and the long, long legs and they can go like the wind.  Well what to do leave them or lift them with kitchen towel and put them out the door.   I decided to lift them and made a poor job of it and they escaped and legged it.so now I don't know where they are.  Should have let them be!!!  I am not a lover of creepy crawlies.  I love the expression on the faces - panic sets in.

Thanks Dorothy I'm still unsure how many . People would  hang one on the wall.art

There can't be many  who want a bug  that is captured in the wild then killed  and had little shiny stone stuck  it doesn't  seem to fit in todays environmentally friendly greener world that everybody is trying to fit into.

then again the tate gallery had a shark ,cow and sheep  That had been cut in half and put on display as art
