From the Publisher: As the authors explain in their introduction, beetles were deified in Ancient Egypt, used for necklaces and brooches by the Amazonian Indians of Peru, and worn live, tethered to gold chains, by fashionable ladies in Victorian times. Today beautiful beetles are so much in demand by international collectors that the governments of Malaysia, Indonesia, and New Guinea have begun major insect breeding programs to supply the growing market. The photographs shown here provide ample evidence of why beetles have been such a valuable commodity to such various cultures.
