Embroidered insect brooches neatly contained in specimen boxes by Vancouver-based artist Hine Mizushima. The brooches, which were created using hand-dyed Kogin fabrics, threads and Japanese glass beads, are for a group exhibition entitled The Kingdom of Specimens at Ranbu gallery in Osaka, Japan. Mizushima is a multidisciplinary artist who majored in Japanese traditional paintings before working as a designer/illustrator in Tokyo. She has created needle-felt sculptures which have been widely exhibited and has done stop-motion puppet animation for a number of commercial music videos.
