An ode to love, symbolized by the deer hunt, a silver bridal heart (with a hidden photo of two lovers) and the love story of Venus and Adonis. With the deer head and skull it means love literally until death.
But, in the insect boxes, love is preserved forever and is therefore immortalized. Whereby love conquers death!

On the left and right you see kings hunting deer, burning hearts and the anemone and rose that refer to Adonis and Venus and symbolize love until death.


Three insectboxes of 10 x 15 x 6 cm, edition 30
