All materials on this piece are : - Ethically sourced - Hand-picked and preserved - Sealed to protect against weathering, aging, and color fade. ~~~Ephemera~~~ This piece is name Ephemera, after the ephemeral nature of life. The wings of this ethically sourced butterfly mimic fallen leaves, the autumnal decay of the world, the preparation for winter. May this piece remind you of your impermanence~ the impermanence of all things~ the precious existence that we all share. Each element of this piece is hand-collected and pressed/preserved by me. This piece contains pansy, orchid, friendship sage, rose, goldleaf, and the wings of an oak leaf 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. Please read the Care Instruction section for more info! ~Each piece that I make is created in an intentional, devotional space. I sit with the plants and create whatever my inner vision directs me to. This is my sacred practice, and it is suffused with magic and love!~ Care Instructions: -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.
