Original copper engraving finely hand colored. Published in Maria Sibylla Merian's famous series De Europische Insecten, a compilation of the Raupenbuch and the Neuen Blumenbuch. In total 184 different engravings were published, which are showing different, carefully hand coloured illustrations of insects in combination with plants. Each of these engravings shows mostly a scene of a decorative flower and various caterpillars with their matching butterflies. The plates were engraved after Maria Sibylla Merian's own observations and were originally published first in her Raupenbuch between 1679 and 1717.
