Ectoparasites: set of four magnetic arthropod models with gift box


Ask a question

A set of four sculptures, all enlarged from real-life animals that inhabit the surface of the human body. You get Pediculus humanus capitis (head louse), Demodex folliculorum (eyelash mite), Pthirus pubis (crab louse) and Sarcoptes scabiei (itch mite).

Each is about 2" long or wide. Originally sculpted in clay then molded in silicone and cast in urethane rubber in four UV-reactive colors (see photo #2) as well as magnets on the underside (photo 3) to stick to the fridge or wherever. You'll get one each of the four colors, but the color assignment of each specimen will be random.

The whole set arrives in a cushy gift box measuring 8x2x1 inches. Mounted to the inside of the box lid is some information regarding each parasite.
