267 – Butterfly Trio
Cultural myth and lore honor the butterfly as a symbol of transformation because of its impressive process of metamorphosis. From egg, to caterpillar, to the cocoon, the butterfly emerges in its glory over a period of only one month.
My original pressed flower picture features three butterflies flying high in the sky. Perhaps they are hovering above your garden looking for the perfect flower to visit. Botanicals include multiple colored larkspur, cosmos, delphinium and a leaf. The background is dyed tenguchi paper over pastel-colored felt. For maximum color protection, it was vacuum sealed between a layer of mylar and acrylic with a second layer of 99% UV conservation glass over the matting.
