These two beautiful Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) were professionally framed in a simple and elegant shadow box.
The butterflies are framed over a vintage print – with specks of gold leaf – that complements their bright colours but we can customise this to include a print of your old postcard, letter or image of your choice.
All insects were captive bred and mounted after living a long and fulfilling life educating children at parties and in classrooms.
As a homage to their long life, missing scales were delicately painted gold and tears in the wings were fixed with gold leaf, turning each butterfly into unique pieces of art.
+ High quality wooden shadowbox frame, ready to be hung.
