Portrait of a Flea, not a Gentleman from Girona

Material used: Fine grain Sandstone

The title, A Portrait of a Gentleman, has been used excessively in art.  Here is a fine Gentleman, in his finest armour, polished and looking magnificent, worthy of a place in the El Prado museum alongside the portrait by El Greco. This articulated armor outperforms the clunky mediaeval armor worn by knights, grows as the little flea grows, and heals as it is damaged. Biomimicry has a long way to go to catch up with Nature.
