This piece is special and dear to my heart, as it is crafted with the wings of the 88 butterfly--a butterfly I would often see on my family's farm in the Andes mountains of Colombia. It is a rainforest butterfly found throughout the jungles of South America. This piece is dedicated to my homeland, to the lush jungles that hold the most biodiversity on Earth. It is a reminder of the wildness of the Earth~ the interconnectedness between all beings. May she help you remember your true nature as a wild thing of the soil and mud, wood and waters.
This piece contains eucalyptus, rose, fern, bodhi tree leaves, angel's breath, grizzly rooster feathers, and the wings of Anna's 88 butterfly.
This butterfly was purchased from a sustainable butterfly sanctuary. This beautiful creature was collected after passing away naturally, and is now honored and cherished forever.

~Each piece that I make is created in an intentional, devotional space. I sit with the plants + wings and create whatever my inner vision directs me to. This is my sacred practice, and it is suffused with magic and love!
-Not for outdoor placement, keep indoors to avoid water damage.-
Best to keep away from direct sunlight, as the plants will fade over time if placed in a window! The fading of plants is natural and does not take away from their beauty, but rather reminds us of the constant change in life. If you are okay with this, then a window is fine. But keep in mind--the colors will stay forever if kept away from direct strong light.
