The next morning, we went to the Museé d'Orsay, which had a lot of beautiful art, including a bunch of lovely art nouveau. I'm going to break it down a bit, and start by just giving y'all a quick survey of the arthropod art I saw there...

A bowl of silver, glass, and enamel, embraced around by a trio of dragonflies:
