Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In this entomological display, Nature-as-Artist holds sway, transforming each insect into a work of art. Composed of 69 boxes, Kerchache's collection is part of a tradition that dates back to the Renaissance, when people created curio rooms to house the discoveries of the great voyagers.
