The plants, beasts, fish and insects that populate our countryside have always been an immediate source of inspiration for Michaël Cailloux, and still-life is his favourite theme. Hence his signature, the fly, bringing life where there was none...

The beetle was a symbol of rebirth for the dead, and a protective talisman for the living.
