This butterfly echoes the leafy face of a sunflower. The serrated edges of the wings emphasize the petals while the center of the butterfly mirrors the blossom of a sunflower. No details weren't overlooked, from the center of the butterfly being textured like sunflower seeds, to the gold glitter simulating the reflection of sunlight.
The basic frame of the insect is created using tin, which is powder-coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. 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 come through as tans and browns underneath the paint. The shell is then painted the bold colors you see. The entire front facing piece is carefully hand-painted keeping in mind the reflective qualities in the color of insects.
