Well here it is. I’ve been working on this on and off for about a month and half now. Fairly satisfied with it. Information on how it was made can be found at a previous blog post. Already prepping another full sized one and I am getting ready to make some to add to the tomb.
I've been working on this for quite awhile. The hardest part was to find a way to spear the mantis without tearing it apart. This is maybe the fourth try? I had a bunch of preserved ones that each time I tried pierce just tore apart. This one I found as it died and as a result was soft enough to work.
