The Unseen Beauty of Nature

Natural pattern revealing the hidden beauty of colonial tunicates living on corals in the Archipelago Los Roques, Venezuela. Tunicates are beautiful and often colourful marine invertebrate animals found all over the world. 

Inspiration

This design means the world to me. I created this pattern using underwater photography of colonial tunicates living on corals in the Archipelago Los Roques, by marine biologist Dr Adriana Humanes. Adriana and I, both come from Venezuela, a country that is now suffering its worst humanitarian crisis in recent history. Los Roques National Park is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and Venezuela is a biodiversity hotspot. By working with scientists like Adriana, we have the privilege to have access to so many incredible organisms from the ocean. My mission and responsibility at Crùbag are to share this mostly unseen beauty and knowledge through colourful textiles and written ocean stories.

By revealing these hidden patterns from nature and bringing marine science and art together, I propose a new aesthetics that is rooted in love, curiosity and the search for scientific knowledge to advance society and protect our planet. Jessica Giannotti, Founder of Crùbag.

Scientific Story

The beauty of nature was evident when I saw this organism. A colonial tunicate (Botrylloides sp.) was growing over one of the substrates that I used to estimate the percentage of natural coral babies in a reef at Los Roques National Park, Venezuela. I spent hours under the microscope examining it, creating small disturbances at the surface of the water to see how it closed the several mouths of its syphons.

Then I discovered more of these in other substrates with different colours: orange, purple, red, black. Nature's beauty is a gift that never stops giving. By Dr Adriana Humanes, Marine Biologist.
