last summer during a trip to świebodzin we left the train too early – by mistake. we found ourselves in the middle of nowewhere: there was only the old train station (permamently closed) and the tree trunk. I sat there to think what to do next…and I’ve found dead european rhinoceros beetle. i took it home and made this brooch.

a brooch to mount on a shirt button: ruthenium coated sterling silver, head of european rhinoceros beetle, obsidian.
