Tea Cup Set Made From Cicada Parts


Cicadas don’t come around too often. But when they do they’re loud and swarmy and really mess things up.

  1. I hope these items were made using dead cicadas- creatures that are both beautiful and completely harmless to people. The droning of a cicada is one of my favourite summertime sounds. I object to the author’s commentary about these photos; prejudice against insects is bred out of fear and ignorance, and is perpetuated by such uninformed drivel.
