Luna Moth - Like Butterfly, Moth shows us the ability to transform, to change, to develop ourselves in accordance with our current situation and future ideals. Do not be afraid of the shadows or the darkness for remember, it is only in these that we can find light.

Adult luna moths have a wingspan of nearly four inches, but despite their large size, they are rarely seen because they are active late at night. Like most other moths, they do not have mouthparts and consequently cannot eat. With a short lifespan of only one week, the luna moth's sole purpose in life is to reproduce. The luna moth represents wisdom and the beauty of the night.

Beeswax, damar resin, oil paint and mixed media elements on a professional wood cradle/canvas. The wooden cradle has an inside opening on the back so a hanger is not necessary - it hangs flat against the wall on two small nails.

Size:
6 x 6 inches (15.2 x 15.2 cm)

Shipping:
I carefully wrap and protect each piece to ensure it arrives safely. Shipped via Priority Mail within the US.

What is Encaustic?
Encaustic is an ancient technique where beeswax and damar resin are melted together to create a medium that can be used in a variety of ways. Layers of encaustic medium are painted on sturdy substrate, usually wood, and each layer is fused together with heat. Encaustic gives an ethereal feel and has a beautiful luminosity.

Will it melt?
Beeswax has a melting point of around 160 degrees so it's not necessary to keep it in a cool room, however, it's recommended to keep it away from heat sources such as fireplaces and heaters.
