Maria Sibylla Merian Pint Glass
There was once a time when people thought that insects were ‘born of mud’ by spontaneous generation. Raise a glass to Maria Sibylla Merian who proved these people wrong. She did this by documenting evidence on the life cycles of 186 insects, and was among the first professionally trained artists to illustrate her lifelong studies and observations. She observed many of these insects in 1699, when she sold 255 of her own paintings to fund a trip for her and her daughter to Suriname. Merian was one of the first naturalists to observe insects directly, and made careful observations and documentation of the metamorphosis of the butterfly, making her one of the most significant contributors to entomology.

Frequently Asked Questions
Good size and weight. Interesting graphic.
I like the size and heft of this pint glass. I bought another glass, which was smaller than this one and found it difficult to wash - my hand could not fit inside. This one is easy to wash. Liked learning about a new (to me) scientist from the past. The packaging has even more interesting tidbits about her life and research.
A great gift with personality
Really excited to gift this! It came promptly, wrapped safely with lots of BIODEGRADABLE packing peanuts (I'm really excited about sustainable packages, guys.) Glass looks exactly like the photos. I love how many options for female scientists there are. This brand kicks butt, so glad I found them!
