Naturaleza Muerta

Still Life in Spanish is Naturaleza Muerta (Dead Nature) and I thought it would be fun to use that as the name for this piece since it was all dead nature anyhow. I have always collected wasp nests. They are nature’s paper sculptures. Each one is unique and the patterns they create are so intricate and beautiful.
