22-Spot Ladybird Woman #3: How the Ladybird Got Her Spots

Pictured above: 22-Spot Ladybird Woman (Psyllobora vigntiduopunctata Homo-insecta) 2015, acrylic on wood, 32 x 23 cm. (Artist’s impression).

To date, the exact measurements of this recently discovered Homo-insecta are unknown. Based on numerous eyewitness accounts, she is approximately 26 cm in length (even taller when she lets her hair down) x 13.5 cm in width. Miniscule by comparison, the European insect from which she evolved, Psyllobora vigntiduopunctata (abbr. Psyllobora 22-punctata) measures a mere 3-5 mm.
