The Thy bottle - top badge project
This badge was made for the Thy bottle - top badge project which was started in celebration of the Limfjord Centre's Special Anniversary (to see all the badges press here).
This badge is made from a photograph of a scarab beetle (and if you dismantled the badge you can remake it like a little puzzle). I collect beetles and have recently started using them in my work. The text on the badge refers to a (possibly apocryphal) quote from Darwin that "The creator, if there is one, had an inordinate fondness for beetles". Although the exact wording may not be accurate, as an avid collector himself, I have no doubt that he would have thought the statement to be true.
