    I love invertebrate muses and all things influenced by Ernst Haeckel. Gorgeous.

    Haeckel always gets two thumbs up here, in fact I think one of his plates has a jellyfish similar to this one. “Zeepaddestoel” is a fascinating word.

    Nicely weird (although I do prefer the rendering in Glass Menagerie).
    Are you aware of this work: http://gwen.roch.free.fr/ ?
    (it is similar to this one: http://lionheartdesign.blogspot.com/2007/01/dnalight-catalog.html)

    Strange…
    I just posted a comment and it has disappeared.
    Do you have a moderation filter installed, or it’s just a case of famished internet eating random comments?

    (I just wanted to ask you if you knew those two artists:
    Amy Leonard :
    http://lionheartdesign.blogspot.com/2007/01/dnalight-catalog.html
    And
    Gwen Roch :

    Sorry about that, Nathalie. The WordPress default is that two links or more get put in moderation by the spam filter. For some reason your comments were in the spam list. It often does this to me as well! I tried changing the setting some time ago to allow more links but it didn’t work.

    Anyway, the links are great, thanks, especially Gwen Roche. I always liked the Cabinet of Curiosities idea so it’s good to see someone develop that.
