Praying mantes have the habit of keeping their front pair of legs, folded together, in front of them. It seems like they are praying, hence their name.
Making the praying mantis is a precise and delicate task. The body is made of black cardboard. The wings are made of unique metallic paper to mimic a shimmering effect.
You can mount this impressive Praying Mantis on your wall or you could let it shine on your desk, shelf or table.
It takes about 15 minutes to assemble the Praying Mantis.
