Grande 4.5″ x 7.5″ delicate dome arrangement featuring a stunning pearlescent Salamis Parhassus or “Mother of Pearl” butterfly specimen balancing on brass geometric metal work over the dramatic crystal peaks of two separate geological smoky and clear quartz specimens. They harmoniously convey a beautiful story of optical prismatic light effect combining geometry and wavelengths of light and darkness, transparency and opacity to create what seems like magical spectral color effects that can be appreciated from all angles.
Each dome arrangement is one of a kind with unique natural elements carefully curated to create a dynamic artistic representation of fantasy and natural history.
The Captured Flight Collection was created from a family innovation passed down from grandfather to granddaughter that features butterflies encased in leaded vintage glass enclosures to preserve each specimen and ensure that the intricacies of each specimen can be appreciated in their entirety in a captured state of flight.
All featured specimens have been sourced from sustainable aviaries around the world.
For best results please do not place in direct sunlight as this may damage the specimen over time.
