"The tiny creatures of Jan Augustin van der Goes are so realistically drawn, it is as though they could creep off the paper at any moment.  By using expensive vellum rather than plain paper, the artist transformed these little drawings into independent works of art.  These kinds of miniatures were collected and kept in albums, just like mounted insects in specimen cabinets."  via Rijksmuseum

This is part of our Cabinet of Curiosities range.

Cabinets of Curiosity were collections of items from nature, art, antiques and science that were of interest to the collector from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
Also known as Cabinets of Wonder or Wonder rooms.

They were an eclectic mix of items that had aesthetic as well as scientific appeal.

We love being able to channel our wonder with the natural world and history into our Cabinets of Curiosity homewares range.
