A beautiful butterfly, a Duke of Burgundy Fritillary, to flutter up your wall. The butterfly is made with layers of silk, cut and enhanced with stitch to build up the intricate wing patterns.
Tiny sequins are added to attract the light and give his wings a shimmer in the light. He has a needle felted body with glass bead eyes and antennae of twisted paper.
He has a ring sewn on his back so he can hang from a hook or perch prettily on the edge of a picture frame. There is an embroidered label with his Latin name, Hamearis lucina, attached with a delicate entomology pin.
He comes in a lovely gift box, lined with a vintage map. His wingspan is 25cm.
The Duke of Burgundy can be found in shady woodland, he is quite a rare creature though he has been spotted in Yorkshire recently.
