Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly - Hand-cut Paper Artwork

This desktop-sized art piece is the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves butterflies. The back of the frame has the following inscription:

"These beauties represent the symmetry between day and night, actions and rest. They are specifically connected to femininity and intuition, as only the females exhibit the distinct blue and orange spots. Let them be a reminder to find the balance in your life."

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.
