This wallpaper’s like polka dots. With six legs. 

This design from our @cooperhewitt features a rose chafer beetle, magnified and multiplied for your viewing pleasure. These insects can be toxic to birds and your garden, but Don Flood’s 2016 paper gives them an artistic treatment with Mylar, a mirror-like substance that mimics their naturally iridescent bodies.

While the background is an opaque white, the beetles are printed in translucent color that gives the viewer a hint of the shiny Mylar beneath.
