Description

Mounted on 11"x14" white mat in black aluminum frame.

Because of the unique nature of their structural coloration, Morpho butterflies are remarkably colorfast. In fact, there are many specimens that have been housed in museum collections well over 100 years that still retain their original brilliance.It is particularly striking when illuminated by spot or directional lights to create a focal point in a room, as it is one of the largest in its family of butterflies with a wingspan of up to 6".

All of the organisms used by Christopher in his artwork were thoughtfully, responsibly and viably harvested with regards to preservation of species and respect of life. Each piece is created with careful attention to the flow of negative space, complimentary coloration, and the meticulous preparation and selection of each specimen. Colors are natural and are protected from fading by UV glass. Do not expose any of Christopher's pieces to high humidity or direct sunlight.
