Aranaeus Saevus “Orbras”

“Orbras” is a tiny, eight-legged engineer–an orb weaver who builds spiral, wheel-shaped webs often found in gardens, fields and forests. Orbras and his compatriots are social, largely non-aggressive, and seldom bite. In 2009, over 107 million orb weaver spiders were found living in a phenomenally huge web that covered four acres of a Baltimore wastewater plant. Cold assembly: 19th century brass doorknob, vintage jewelry, antique button, wool roving, wire. Dimensions: 9″x9″x3″Read more
