Here is my gorgeous Feathered Lemur. Did you know that the word Lemur comes from the Roman word for ghost or spirit.

My Feathered Lemur is like a captured spirit preserved in an entomology box.

I think of him as a sculptural object, he’s framed in a museum entomology box that is perfect for standing on your mantlepiece or a shelf. Please note it doesn’t have hanging fixtures. If you would like to discuss other framing options please do get in touch.
