The largest wasp in the United States the Tarantula Hawk Wasp feeds on nectar, but procreate in a particularly morbid fashion. When a female is ready to lay her eggs, she seeks out a tarantula and injects it with paralyzing venom. She drags the tarantula to a burrow and stuffs it down the hole, then lays her eggs on top of the paralyzed spider. Several days later the eggs hatch and the larvae feed on the still living tarantula.
Print Collection has commissioned artist Julian Montague to create our State of America series. These bright, bold, graphic images iconicize the quirky Official State Insignias from around the nation. Red States and Blue States may now be a thing of the past.
All prints are made with the finest quality Digital Giclée printing using 12 color archival inks. We have chosen a 300gsm Rag paper with no "Optical Brightners" to extend the life of your print.
Great care has been taken to reproduce this image for you. Color, exposure, and other digital adjustments have been made to this historic image while working to maintain a direct connection to the original, photographic print, fine lithograph or hand pulled silk screen.
