Jewel beetle wing chandelier.  Wow.  I am blown away by this.  Can you blame me?  After reading and writing about Marjorie Skouras, I got to thinking about all the different materials one can use for chandeliers and I thought about our jewel beetle wings and how they would make the most sublime gothic chandeliers.  And lo and behold, a Belgian artist Jan Fabre, in 2002, has done just that.  1.6 million Thai jewel beetles were used to create this marvelous installation named Heaven of Delight.
