The Mother of Pearl butterfly really lives up to its namesake, as the pearlescent wings change from pink to purple and gold when caught in the light. Native to Africa this unique species lives in forests. This specimen has some damage to the right wing, as shown in the photos. 

This butterfly has been been set with the wings slightly closed to mimic perching. It has been paired with a hand painted watercolour background in purple to compliment the wing tones. The deep box frame can be hung on a wall or placed on a bookshelf. It is one of a kind! 

Dimensions 
The frame is 11.3 x 11.3 x 6cm deep, the glass is 9.2 x 9.2cm.
