This piece is teeming with a host of blue Morpho butterflies. The butterflies are displayed inside a picture frame, densely packed and overlapping, giving the effect of a clamour to escape the confines of the box. The underside of the wings are a deep brown pattern with multiple eyespots, making the Morpho perfectly camouflaged when its wings are closed.
Each butterfly is hand cut, before being scored and folded to create a three-dimensional effect. Black wire antennae are attached to each insect, before they are pinned off on a black background.
This piece is displayed in an authentic lepidopterist box, available in a natural wood or black finish.
They make fantastic gifts as well as impressive centrepieces to decorate your home.
