Designed this frame today at the workbench.

Which way looks the best ? I wired both ends so it can hang either way.

I like it head up. Nice the way the beetle’s proboscis is mimicked by the frame. Are there supposed to be grayed out boxes in the top project frames?

I like the head up too. Once again Dan – your tiles are very nice, don’t mean to say anything negative about them – but your frames are some of the best looking frames I’ve ever seen.

It would also look good sideways which makes it unique in that you can mount it in any position!

How would it look with the tile up and the frame down, It would create a symetrical mirror effect and alittle more contrast. Perhaps alittle to distracting though.

Ditto Harold. But either way the frame goes, the scarab should definitely be going up regardless (IMHO). It’s more positive.

I agree with Harold, I think it would look good with just the tile turned around and the extensions of the frame down with the head of the beatle up. Thats my two cents worth. Nice frame.
