The buzz of insects
Beetles that shimmer and vanish among little stones..., adorn these two little visiting-card size greetings, each carrying an evergreen symbol of Christmas, the magical roles of which are steeped in the beliefs and myths of ancient cultures.
We sometimes forget how the Victorians valued the natural history all around them, exemplified by the abundance of cards, exquisitely decorated and embossed of beautiful flower studies.
It is, therefore, not surprising to find insects alongside the animals in our Christmas Menagerie.
