Crepe Paper Sculpture of a Phyllium Leaf Insect. These Insects, also called ‘Walking Leaves’, can be found in the Indian subcontinent through to Southeast Asia and Australasia.

For my sculptures, I am inspired by the beauty of nature and I try to make them as lifelike and detailed as I can. This sculpture is close to lifesize, it measures around 11 cm from head to tail.
