Mini Original Butterfly Wing-Scales Specimen No.08
These paintings are giant illustrations of the wing surface of a butterfly (or moth) wing, as seen under the microscope. The wings of these insects are carpeted in millions of tiny vibrant scales in an incredible variety of colours.
This painting is cut out, designed to be raised up and floated in a frame under glass, like a specimen on a microscope slide. The white backing you see is not part of the artwork, it is simply the background the piece is resting on for the photographs. The coloured area is the artwork.
