Green beetle wings used to make the dress following
A Victorian dress made from 1,000 beetle wings that was worn by one of the most famous actresses of the era has been restored at a cost of £50,000.
The emerald and sea green gown - worn by Ellen Terry when she played Lady Macbeth at London's Lyceum Theatre in 1888 - is now on display in Smallhythe Place, Kent.
It is covered with the iridescent wings of the jewel beetle which the insects naturally shed as part of their life cycle.
