Endangered Species in Glass

In September 2006 Dublin will host the first ever international meeting exploring the art and science of nineteenth century glass artists Rudolf and Leopold Blaschka, creators of some of the most extraordinarily intricate glass sculptures in the world. Dublin's natural history museum will exhibit some of its world-class collection of Blaschka models not normally displayed to the public for the occasion. These sculptures include anatomically detailed, scientifically correct models of hundreds of species of marine animals, and greatly magnified microscopic organisms... something not to be missed.
