Anthropomorphic Insect Shadowbox
This class is part of The Morbid Anatomy Art Academy

Want something? Bring it! My selection is random!
If you have something in mind, from the type of shadowbox to any specific prop, I can't guarantee you will find it in the pile.

1:18 scale is best when shopping for miniatures.

BEETLES WILL BE PROVIDED. Each student receives one beetle approximately 2-3 inches tall when posed vertically.

Today, join AMNH Senior Insect Preparator Daisy Tainton for a special edition of Observatory's popular Anthropomorphic Insect Shadowbox Workshop. In this class, students will work with Rhinoceros beetles: nature's tiny giants. Each student will learn to makeand leave with their own!shadowbox dioramas featuring carefully positioned beetles doing nearly anything you can imagine. A collection of miscellaneous dollhouse toys will be provided to finish your diorama.

Daisy Tainton is an Insect Preparator at the American Museum of Natural History, and has been working with insects professionally for several years. Eventually her fascination with insects and love of Japanese miniature food items naturally came together, resulting in cute and ridiculous museum-inspired yet utterly unrealistic dioramas. Beetles at the dentist? Beetles eating pie and knitting sweaters? Even beetles on the toilet? Why not?
