This distinctive framed Blue Morpho butterfly (Morpho menelaus) is an enchanting statement piece that will add a twist to your existing decor. The name “morpho” is thought to originate from the fact that these butterflies appear to change shape as they’re flying. The blue color is not a pigment but an iridescence. This group of butterflies have long been a source of fascination to humans with native populations of the Amazon associating this butterfly with a long list of superstitious beliefs, and considered both wish granters or evil spirits.
