Description

Mounted on 11"x14" white mat in black aluminum frame.

Though closely related to the Cobalt Swallowtail, the Lime Glass Swallowtail is part of the elite tribe of butterflies called "Peacock" or "Gloss" Swallowtails; each possessing part or all of a peacock feather "eye" somewhere on the hind-wing. This species is fairly common throughout many of the Indonesian islands, while entirely absent in others. It is widely captive bread with a wingspan on 4" to 4.5"

All of the organisms used by Christopher in his artwork were thoughtfully, responsibly and viably harvested with regards to preservation of species and respect of life. Each piece is created with careful attention to the flow of negative space, complimentary coloration, and the meticulous preparation and selection of each specimen. Colors are natural and are protected from fading by UV glass. Do not expose any of Christopher's pieces to high humidity or direct sunlight.
