This desktop-sized art piece is the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves monarchs. The back of the frame has the following inscription:
"These brightly coloured butterflies are well known for their long migration that is thousands of miles long and spans generations. They are a representation of the internal compass that drives us through life. If a monarch lands on you take it as a sign that your choices are setting you on the right path."
The artwork begins with hand-cutting a single piece of cardstock for the outline of the butterfly. Then coloured tissue paper is meticulously cut to size and added to the wings, making them slightly translucent. The wings are then curved slightly and the insect is mounted on sturdy cardstock. Each piece looks like a real specimen and is sure to be a conversation starter.
