Species Name: Mormolyce tridens

Common Name: Violin Beetle

Origin: Malaysia

Size: 4 x 6" Shadow Box Frame

I like to work with this beetle mainly because of its name and shape. They get their common name from looking like a violin, but let's be honest they look utterly goofy. They are roughly 5 mm thick, craned their neck and put a tiny head at the end. Then their wing cases went mad such that they take up a ridiculous amount of space for no apparent reason, like an unreasonably massive dress, and well most of them have fused wings so they can't fly ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ They are also called banjo beetles, in the subfamily Lebiinae and can be found in rainforests of Southeast Asia (Brunei, Indonesia, Java, Malaysia and Sumatra).

Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got it’s start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective”. As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from.
