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 this piece is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. The front of the body is adorned with capiz. 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 may come through as tans and browns underneath the hand-painted surface.
