Granulated Ground Beetle


20cm x 13cm x 6cm

Edition of 25

Bronze cast in the UK to the highest standard and using recycled metals. Certified carbon neutral.

The Granulated Ground Beetle, Carabus granulatus, is widespread in Europe and Asia and has been introduced to North America. 

This is one of the larger carabids at just over 2 cm. The sculpture, with head and body length at 14 cm, is extremely oversized allowing for a very high level of anatomical accuracy.

These beetles are a wonderful subject for bronze sculpture as they really do look like they are made of metal if you find one in its wetland or woodland habitat.
