Deconstructed Mosaic Reef Crab (Lophozozymus Pictor) Under Antique Glass Dome
Deconstructed Mosaic Reef Crab (Lophozozymus Pictor) under antique glass dome.
In Latin, the term "pictor" translates to painter. Somewhat resembling a fan and typically displaying hues of red to orange. It showcases eye-catching mosaic patterns comprised of large white spots. The creature possesses short pincers of equal size, featuring black tips. Additionally, its legs are hairy and terminate in pointed tips.
The deconstruction technique invented by anatomist Edmé François Chauvot de Beachêne in France in the 19th century involves the meticulous disassembly of all the components of a skull or crustacea. In this case, the pieces are re-articulated and positioned in an exploded array on a copper wire support. This is the same technique as the anatomical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci.
Measures: 12.5" x 6" x 16"
