Inspired by a praying mantis image sent by a friend, Roberto C. Belem, at the time the Zurich Street Parade was happening two weeks ago. I took one look at the image and said, oh yes, this has to be an outrageous Party Praying Mantis with a Carmen Miranda headdress and feather boa and big red lips worked into the insect’s wings 😉
This makes 3 paintings of Praying Mantis in my collection along with cats, frogs and tigers being a popular theme.
