Item Description


70" x 60" x 1"

"Mantis" was a unique find for Kris during a foray into an old botanical garden in Needham, MA. The Praying Mantis was electrifying to watch as its bright green body contrasted sharply with the deep pinks and reds on the lily behind it. The Mantis was intent on following the activity around it and one could easily feel that the Mantis' fishbowl experience had been rightly turned on the human voyeur.
