Ernst Haeckel “Botryllus Polycyclus” Ascidiae pendant, green
Botryllus Polycyclus (Schlosseri) of the class Ascidiae - colony forming marine animal From Ernst Haeckel's 'Kunstformen der Natur', 1899-1904.
Ernst Haeckel (1834 – 1919) was a German biologist, physician, professor, and artist who discovered and described thousands of new species. ‘Kunstformen der Natur’ (Art Forms in Nature) was a book of lithographic and halftone prints made from his drawings, in which he set out to convey the beauty, intricacy and organisation of natural forms. His work was influential not only in the natural sciences but also in early 20th-century art, architecture, and design.
The pendant setting is made from metal alloy and the glass cabochon is 25mm across.
Choose a 24” (60cm) silver tone chain, or an 18” (45cm) black leather cord or black organza and cotton cord. A pendant on a chain or organza-&-cotton cord comes in a sturdy black card gift box; a pendant on a leather cord comes in an organza bag so as not to distort the leather by tight folding.
