This piece showcases a bright, blue body strong in aqua tones. The upper wings glisten from the inlay of shell work; each shell absorbing and reflecting light differently than its neighbor. The lower wings contrast with a softer, satin, blue finish. As an added detail, the metal in the lower wing is pressed to represent the artist's view of the wing's components. Beads radiate from the center of the butterfly, almost making it feel as if this butterfly is transforming from a flower into its animal form.
The basic frame of this piece is created using tin, which is powder-coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. The front of the body is adorned with capiz. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz may come through as tans and browns underneath the hand-painted surface.
