Seba's snakes

Having found out about Albertus Seba's cabinet of natural curiosities in a drawing class, I was delighted to be given a copy of the book and especially love the way the snakes writhe across the page. They are found both only with other snakes and also in plates with other animals -
Many of the plates can be seen online; if it's just the snakes you're after, click here.

The book has inspired this funky cabinet -
Each volume is a drawer.
