Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

The Tiger Swallowtail butterfly, papilio glaucus, has vivid dark jagged stripes against yellow and looks like the fur of a tiger. This is the female of the species, with bright blue and gaudy golden topaz color on the rear wing. Since butterflies are so amazingly delicate, the scale of the materials required a few artistic liberties. The stitched butterfly is graceful, jeweled, classically colored, and made of raised gold bullion, metallic threads, crystals, glass beads, and pearls.
