Inspired by the Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly, latin name Eurytides marcellus, this hanging was cut from wispy white stained glass, then hand-painted and fired to an enamel finish. Care was taken to replicate the butterfly's wing patterns as faithfully as possible, including the light veining of the wings.
Two discreet copper loops are attached to the top of the wings and then connected by a thin copper chain for hanging.
