Lobster, Deconstructed, Mounted on a Black Wooden Base in a Glass Dome, France

$2,800Asking Price

About

A deconstructed lobster (Palinurus vulgaris) mounted on a black painted wood base with a glass dome, made in France . The technique was invented by Dr Claude Beauchene in France in the 19th century and involves the meticulous taking apart of all the components of a skull or crustacea, in this case, and re-articulating and positioning it in a more extended, or exploded, format presented on a copper wire support. This deconstructed technique was also illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci in his anatomical drawings.
