Botanical artwork made entirely of flowers, leaves, goldleaf, and butterfly wings on a double vintage frame that folds in two like a book. Easily stands securely on any flat surface. ~1960's.
One of a kind! Each piece is approx. 5” x 7”, or 10.5” x 7” in. when fully extended.
All materials on this piece are :
- Ethically sourced
- Hand-picked and preserved
- Sealed to protect against weathering, aging, and color fade.
This is one of my all-time favorite pieces. Perfect for an altar, desk, or table, this piece folds in two and stands upright perfectly at varying degrees of closure. On one side is a wildflower meadow scene, with a beauty butterfly sipping from a flower. On the other side is a wildflower meadow fairy~an elemental being of honey and pollen and petals and magick. This piece carries the gentle energetics of a springtime meadow--may it bring soft angelic presence into your home and space.
This vintage frame (~1960's) was hand-selected and re-purposed by me. Mirror is hand-cut for this specific design and was carefully and lovingly put together to create this unique piece. All plants and wings are glued directly onto mirror and then covered with another piece of glass for protection and shine!
This piece contains statice flower, lavender, pansy, eucalyptus, queen anne's lace, wax flower, wild wheat, rose, various unknown wildflowers, goldleaf, the wings of an unknown butterfly found after a storm on my grandmother's farm in the Colombian Andes mountains, and the wings of a ricepaper butterfly (Idea leucone clara).
This ricepaper butterfly was purchased from a sustainable butterfly sanctuary. The other smaller butterfly was found on my family's farm in Colombia after a storm. These beautiful creatures were all collected after passing away naturally, and are now honored and cherished forever.

~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!~
-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
