Onyx (Mat paper)

SKU: ONYXWP Categories: ,
Inspired by the illustrations of the 17th-century botanist and entomologist Maria Sybilla Merian, who travelled to Suriname and documented hundreds of species of insects and their food flowers. Onyx is a geometrical pattern of jewel-like scarabs and other insects in emerald green and ultramarine blue on an indigo and charcoal black background. The arrangement of the little creatures in concentric circular and square formations echoes the highly decorative azulejo tiles of Spain and Portugal.
