News Link: RCI creating exhibits for China
In January of 2014, we were commissioned to build 12 dioramas for the Shanghai Natural History Museum in addition to custom making 133 specimens of fish, corals, and invertebrates for a large coral reef and 190 specimens for a hydrothermal vent. From a tiny orchid mantis to an oversized Man o War jellyfish, the range in specimens that had to be custom built was incredible. The dioramas depict wildlife from large mammals to tiny insects in their respective habitats. The exhibits opened in Shanghai in April of 2015.
