I still have over 10K insects...
lol the only insect I have is some dragon fly from the 1980s, it somehow found its way into an old canvas's plastic wrapping I have.
Your comment made me laugh and think of this. I'm a avid antiques. I recently went to one of my local Goodwill's. I found what I thought looked interesting so I bought them. The price was right.
Goodwill like to use 2" wide clear tape to hold like things together. I bought a pair of salt and pepper shakers and a cream and sugar set, each wrapped heavily in clear tape. I saw a fly under the tape and thought a fly was on the tape. Big was the laugh on me. It was part of the design.
As you can see it's on the pottery. After doing some research the pattern is called Fly in my eye. Sure made me laugh.
Something about this thread really bugs me!
Both of these are from Indonesia, first one is from Kalimantan, second Flores .....
