    Glassiegirl asked for more bugs...

    Here is a Bzz Bzz!

    Life size, very realistic, I found it at flea (fly!) market more than 25 years ago.

    The wings are in one piece, pinched by the thorax part.
    Look like carved blond horn, but may be an old yellowed plastic.

    I saw some old terracotta busts of a child crying with one of this on his nose, from how it is soldered on the pick, I'm rather sure it is for that.

    Of course, as facetious, I fooled my guests and friends many times with sticking it on the cheese, lol!

      It is very ironic that when I looked at the first pic, a very small (and annoying) fly began flying around my computer screen. Typing this, I got hit in the face by it.

      Hi Manikin! The precious ones don't fool anybody, but the magnets, YESSSS!
      I saved the fly from beeing smashed many times... if I had a face piercing, I may wear it...
      :-D

      SpiritBear... now you can feel the strength of my power... I sent you the fly to say hello ;-))

      Sorry, Kyra, the bugger looks too real (shudder!)!!! [;>)))

      Sorry CW team, it is not jewelry, but part of a whimsical sculpture, so re-re-categorised it in visual art :-)

      I love the cheese story, of course it would be another matter if you stuck it in your hair, and your friend swatted it ! A black and Blue Easter, mixed in with some red, Blessed Easter to you dear friend !
