Sarsia siphonophora II (B 657)

Sarsia siphonophora (B 657) II 
2012 watercolour 
(ca 55 x 75 cm)
The previous entry showed a detail of the colony building jellyfish species Sarsia siphonophora.

In this blog I present an impression of the complete animal.
This image is of course not true to life: everything (shapes, curls, colours) is exagerated for great effect.

Haeckel, 1879

In Ernst Haeckel's  
Das System der Medusen
(publ.: Jena: Gustav Fischer, 1879)
the real preparatory material is found on Plate 1, figure 4.
