Elevate Your Interior with “Collection of 56 perfectly preserved butterflies from 3 continents

Introducing a mesmerizing collection that transcends conventional interior design – “Collection of Four Butterfly Frames from Around the World.” This extraordinary assemblage stands as a testament to the kaleidoscopic beauty of butterflies that grace every corner of our planet. Meticulously curated according to the principles of a mosaic, this ensemble features an exclusive gathering of male butterflies. Our team of dedicated specialists delicately undertook the task of collecting and arranging these specimens, ensuring the absolute safety and preservation of each individual butterfly.

A substantial portion of this exquisite collection comprises specimens from the Morpho family, celebrated for their captivating allure. The Morpho genus, encompassing over 29 accepted species and 147 accepted subspecies, primarily inhabits the lush landscapes of South America, Mexico, and Central America. The wingspans of Morpho butterflies range from a delicate 7.5 cm, exemplified by M. rhodopteron, to an impressive 20 cm for M. hecuba, famously known as the imposing sunset morpho. The name “morpho,” signifying “changed” or “modified,” pays homage to the transformative beauty of these enchanting creatures. Butterflies belonging to the Morpho genus have long held the fascination of observers with their extraordinary beauty. In fact, the very name of the genus itself holds significance, as it translates to “beautiful” in Greek. Locally, these butterflies are poetically referred to as “a piece of the sky that fell to the ground.”

Adding to the enchantment of this collection is the inclusion of Chrysiridia rhipheus, the Madagascan sunset moth, a distinguished member of the Uraniidae family. Revered for its impressive and visually appealing characteristics, this day-flying moth graces the pages of prestigious Lepidoptera coffee table books and is highly coveted by collectors. The vibrant colors, resulting from optical interference in the iridescent wing parts, are elegantly complemented by pigmented black portions. Adults of this species boast a wingspan ranging from 7 to 9 cm, further contributing to the diversity and splendor of this exceptional butterfly collection.

Now, you have the unparalleled opportunity to infuse your living space with the exotic beauty of the tropical forest. “Collection of Four Butterfly Frames from Around the World” invites you to experience the enchanting world of butterflies, bringing a piece of nature’s artistry into your home. Elevate your interior design with this exceptional collection that not only captivates the eye but also tells a story of the natural wonders spanning our globe.
