Exquisitely beautiful, the beetles in this tiled arrangement induce wonder. Christopher Marley’s thoughtful arrangements of outrageous color—natural and not enhanced digitally—invite us to contemplate these creatures’ breathtaking allure. Marley asserts that an increased appreciation for these jewel-like beasts can help slow the willful destruction of their habitat—which, unlike individual collection, is the only true threat an insect species faces. Cozy up with these fine specimens while you complete this 1,000-piece puzzle, and you’ll come away with a new appreciation for bugs in general.
