The handmade Kumihimo braids depict snakes from the Viperidae family. Each is a representation of the characteristic colour pattern of a specific species, scaled to half its length.
Information cards (shown opposite) are displayed alongside the work.
Secret compartments, in the handmade cabinets, contain hand-coloured, concertina style booklets that inform the collections and removable perspex doors allow individually boxed specimens to be removed for closer inspection.
