Phasmida 2 is another collection of leaf insects, but also includes a nymph form (bottom right hand corner). It is much thinner than the adult, with normally less complex leg coverings. Again, they are made from autumnal and winter leaves and twigs, beads and wire.

All parts are stitched with hand-dyed silk threads onto painted hand-made Mexican paper.
