Inspired by an Italian trip to a Leonardo Da Vinci Invention Museum I wanted to create a Mythical Steampunk Machine. Imagine my delight when I found Leonardo Napkins at Tamara’s Paper Napkins on Etsy! I also wanted to create a Sci-Fi vibe, so I did a bit research on fireflies. Firstly, I discovered Fireflies are not really flies but beetles from the Order Coleoptera. The light is from the compound Luciferin which is the most efficient light in the world and used in a growing field of medical research as well as gene manipulation in plants so they light up in our homes potentially reducing the consumption of fossil fuel based lighting. Now my imagination was set alight and a whole story lit up in my head of world where humans could harness that light and energy. Would it be fabulous world – maybe not?
