Fascinating Femme fatale
Granted, the praying mantis’ reputation isn’t the best. Apparently engrossed in prayer, in addition to spiders and insects, it also eats conspecifics or its partner in a flash. She has already posed for some monster films. Nevertheless, it has a fascinating aesthetic that our artists have captured perfectly in glass and metal.
Truly majestic, the beautiful praying mantis presents itself with a very special facial expression. From the finely crafted golden antennae to the stable 4 feet, it is as artistic as it is naturalistic.

Cleo’s mesmerizing eyes are thanks to the ingenuity of our glassmakers. The transparent glass of the eyes is frosted at the back and clear at the front. The colour is created by a light blue glass plate lying behind the eyes.
The violet eyebrows give her a feminine touch and are reminiscent of her namesake Cleopatra.
