The sculpture of the red-speckled jewel beetle captured and conveyed a moment when it opened its wings. This moment demonstrates the beauty of elytra above the wings. The jewel beetle is my first sculpture of an insect with spread wings.

The sculpture of the beautiful demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo) possesses elegant wings. I mimicked veneer patterns by carving them on epoxy. The effect that the faceted eyes of a dragonfly are continually observing you was achieved by facet-cut topazes covered by epoxy resin.

Rainbow Milkweed Locust

(Phymateus saxosus)

The shape of the wing creates significant limitations because the thinner and more delicate the wing, the easier it deforms under the weight. Rainbow Milkweed Locust was the first sculpture I tried with my "venation techniques," which successfully bio-mimicked the insect's wings and reinforced the construction.


The charism of the Lantern Bug inspired me for this sculpture. This sculpture's uniqueness is that the wing venation pattern is identical to the real one. And most importantly, this venation has both an aesthetic and a functional design aspect.

The sculpture is inspired by Devil's Flower Mantis, the largest of species that mimics flowers. This sculpture is more based on a motif than a replica, but its cartoon concept features openwork wings that mimic vein patterns with an elegant, slender body. 


This sculpture mimics the Indian flower mantis, whose specific coloration and behavior imitate the flora surrounding their habitat. My trademark wing reinforcement technique allows me to replicate openwork wings, including vein patterns.
