The Alcides is a richly toned day-flying moth closely related to the Sunset Moth of Madagascar. Its dark velvet scales set off iridescent arcs of blue-green to olive. These beautiful moths are somewhat variable in color, however only the most brilliant specimens are used in Chris's pieces.
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.
