Ellen Terry wore this “beetle wing” dress for an 1888 performance of 'Macbeth' at the Lyceum Theatre. The dress, designed by Alice Comyns Carr, is adorned with real wings shed naturally by the jewel beetle of Southeast Asia. Carr, who worked closely with Terry on her costumes, wrote that the dress should look “like soft chain armour… [and] give the appearance of the scales of a serpent”. John Singer Sargent’s 1889 painting
