Stag Beetle (Detail)
You don't have to wear this beetle stag, Tattly come in pairs!
This intricate creature was engraved by Jacob Hoefnagel as a part of his bound volume Archetypa studiaque patris Georgii Hoefnagelii, published in 1592. This Tattly was created as part of the licensing partnership with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Jacob Hoefnagel, court artist to Emperor Rudolph II in Prague, is noted for his natural history illustrations. His engravings done after drawings by his father, Joris, and published in 1592 in Frankfurt, are of plants, insects and small animals, as seen and studied from life.
