So simplistic, yet so stunning, people will have a hard time telling if this is artwork or real, but it is the REAL skeleton of a rice paper butterfly (Idea blanchardi), artistically mounted in a 9” x 9” gallery style shadow box. The specimen has been “skeletonized”, a unique process developed by B.U.G. that removes the scales on the wings to reveal the beautiful architecture underneath the colorful scales. In this display, half of the butterfly is “skeletonized” and other half left as is. The ideal artwork for mixing with your other black and white prints. Includes a natural history story about the specimen on a museum style label on back. Mounted on archival acid and lignin free mounting papers. Hanging hook attached or can stand on its own. Black frame with double sealed and UV conservation glass. 9”H x 9” W x 1 ¼”D. Handmade in the USA.
