Why we love the Butterfly Wall Decor Gold And Blue (m2053)

Chances are you have seen the eastern tiger swallowtail at some point. This species can be seen in every state on the continent, as well as Canada and Mexico. Even though the males are colorful, the females carry more of the color and therefore inspired this realistic butterfly piece. Bringing this recreation of nature into your home will add design and color to your space.

The basic frame of the butterfly is created using tin, which is powder-coated with a black finish and makes this piece safe to use outdoors. The edges of the frame are reinforced using thicker tin wire. The front of this piece is adorned in areas with capiz shell, an oyster native to the Philippines, before being hand-painted and sealed with a water-based sealant. The primary purpose of this oyster to provide a source of food, however, the shell is a sustainable by-product that can be used for decoration. The capiz shell subtly replicates the reflective qualities of butterflies in nature. The entire piece is lightweight and has an eyelet in the back allowing it to be hung using a finishing nail, command strip, or a push pin.

Due to it being a natural material, the organic colors of capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.
