Oregon artist Christopher Marley (American, b. 1969) spent his childhood catching snakes, raising lizards, and dreaming of Komodo dragons, but he was terrified of anything with more than four legs. As an adult, Marley became fascinated by insects’ jewel-like colors, incredible shapes, and perfect mechanics, which led him to visit remote locales, collecting and observing insects, birds, reptiles, and other creatures in their native habitats. With each preserved organism displayed in its natural state—with colors true to life—Marley transforms specimens into stunning works of art. The creatures presented in his designs are collected in an environmentally sensitive way. For eye-popping proof that the world is indeed full of wonders, look no further than the exquisite creatures in Marley’s striking compositions.
