From the Curiosity Cabinet: A Cicada Cast-off

This reminded me of the things we leave behind.

draw and shoot


This little cicada shell was gleaming in the sun like a miniature bronze, and naturally it beckoned to come home with me. It is the moulted shell from the final  stage in a cicada’s growth. You may have happened across a similar empty shell tentatively clinging to a tree branch. You’d bring it home too, wouldn’t you?

The escape hatch. A little tear up the back.

*If you are curious about method, this cicada shell was photographed on a mirror.
