Summary "The subject of these sculptural masterpieces is the natural world: birds, frogs, gum blossoms and, most often, invertebrates such as moths and dragonflies. In portraying insects so much larger than life, Annemieke opens a window on the world that surrounds us, a world of beauty that is frequently unseen. Each work requires painstaking research, field studies, specimen collecting and countless sketches, and is preceded by detailed and exquisite drawing. Annemieke uses an amazing variety of materials - silk, wool, fur, cotten, synthetics - carefully choosen for their colour, texture, credibility and aesthetic appeal."--BOOK JACKET
