The Woman Who Changed Science Forever

We has the absolute pleasure of working alongside The BBC and The Royal Society to create a short film to celebrate the life and works of Maria Sibylla Merian.

Three hundred years ago it was widely believed insects spontaneously appeared from dust, mud or rotten meat! Then Maria came along and changed science forever. The 17th Century artist and naturalist is now being recognised as one of the world’s first ecologists. We created the artwork for this film based on her own beautiful illustrations.
