Artsy Inverts

Here is a selection of plates from Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature, 1904). Haeckel was a scientist and artist with a mixed past (if your biology/history classes are a bit fuzzy, you can look here and here).

However, these are gorgeous (if not strictly taxonomically accurate in all cases).
