A masterpiece of Maria Sibylla Merian, one of the largest female scientists 
and artists from the 17th century. Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium (published in 1705) was the work of a
very enterprising and independent woman.
In 1699, she traveled to Surinam specifically to research the propagation and development 
of insects. Nowadays, it is regarded as a highly-favored artist, but also as an empirical
scientist, who, as one of the first, referred to the common idea of ​​the spontaneous
generation of insects from earth to the empires of the fables. Her life and work are i
nternationally investigated by botanists, entomologists and historians who engage in
the history of science, art, religion and economics.
