„The X-Rayed Newt“ – painting by Birgit Schweimler.
Thanks to Ron Boots for his passion and commitment.
Taxon was influenced by Birgit‘s wonderful paintings, my many visits to zoological collections and the following works:
Ernst Haeckel - Kunstformen der Natur / Kunstformen aus dem Meer (Prestel)
Albertus Seba - Cabinet of Natural Curiosities (Taschen)
Henry Horenstein - Aquatics (Stewart, Tabori & Chang)

Terrifying wonders from distant dominions.
Creation on a shelf.
