This butterfly is large and captures attention with its striking red body. The bold, red field is interrupted with soft white and pink lotus blossoms, a flower that has been cultivated for over 1300 years. Bold yet graceful, this piece will be a focal point within its surroundings.
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.
