Handmade unicorn beetle, Palm leaf weaving uang, xylotrupes dichotomus
by Ting Zhang
This unicorn beetle is made by palm leaf. I weaved it for more than 6 hours, and dyed it with coloring agent. This unicorn beetle is very like-life, and it’s size is 9*4cm. You can pose it’s legs as you wish. Palm leaf weaving is a Chinese traditional handicraft which starts from 3000 years ago. The specialty of this craft is using palm leaf as the the weaving material. Although the material is natural leaf, the works can be kept for decades without any distortion.
