Paris-based artist Nozomi created these glistening beetle specimens through a process of digital sculpting, 3d printing, and good old-fashioned lacquer painting. The works are a continuation of an ongoing series where she explores the backs of beetles as a backdrop for her digitial work. Nozomi is selling a few of the pieces on Etsy and you can follow her on Instagram.
