Description

The brilliant colors of the Madagascan Sunset Moth (Urania ripheus) warn predators of it’s toxicity, and will draw attention to this stunning piece of framed insect art. Unlike most other moths, this beautiful symbol of faith and determination is not nocturnal, but flies by day. The Madagascan sunset moth is also available for sale displaying the underside (ventral side). Its striking coloration made it popular for use in jewelry during the Victorian Era.
