Gigantus Green Blue is a Collosphaera Huxleyi Müller radiolarian, a microscopic sea creature which I’ve scaled and given the colors of the sea using blue and green rose cut tourmalines. The tourmalines are tension set between two layers.
See more of Haeckel’s drawings in his 1862 book “Art Forms In Nature” which focused on creatures from the waters of the Strait of Messina.
