Product Description


Butterflies, passionflowers, clematis and many other beautiful plants are to be found on this... oh... simply enchanting nappy. It reminds us of the natural scientist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), who developed a passion for entomology in the 17th century and thus created an entire branch of science. "Devil creature that was in those days, indignation and disgust arouse the young woman, but she does not let herself be put off. She collects caterpillars and draws them, sees them pupate and draws this, sees them hatch as a butterfly whose colours she captures on parchment. For some a horror, for her a wonder. Metamorphosis becomes her life theme." (Source) Her impressive copper engravings and paintings of numerous insects, birds and flowers still inspire the scientific and art world today. And we are inspired by her extraordinary biography.
