Beetle Mania

We saw this wallpaper at an art exhibit which was part of the Biennale Arte di Venezia. The beetle with a spot on it's back was named by Oskar Scheibel, a Yugoslav amateur entomologist, who was a huge fan of Adolf Hitler. When he discovered this cave beetle, he named it Anophthalmus hitleri.
