Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium – II


SKU: NATA-0202-0918 Category:


Anna Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was a German artist and entomologist who studied plants and insects and made detailed drawings of them. Her observations and documentation of the metamorphosis from caterpillars to butterflies are an important, if not well-known, contribution to entomology. She was, as far as we know, the first person who drew the insects together with the plant they were thriving on.
