This moth is made from a rescued oil painting that had been left out side with a broken frame and a huge tear in it.
It was in such a bad way I almost didn't think I could do anything with it.
But once released from it rotten frame gently washed and strengthened with thick cotton the subtle colours came out and I knew it would look beautiful as moth wings.
The picture was of a rock out to sea with seagulls and stormy clouds.
Each one holds tiny details of this scene.
Due to the nature of the original fabric please expect lots of marks,fades,nail holes and tiny tears.
The painting has been matte varnished since to help seal the paint but tiny flecks may still come off.
Designed as a decorative object he is both charming and unique.
Flaws and odd stitching are celebrated and are to expected.
Hangs simply from a ring on the reverse.
He will be sent out recorded so can be tracked and signed for on delivery.
Nothing I make is designed to be given to a child/baby as they are delicate items which contain wire and beads.
This moth is 42cm in width and length is 14cm (not including antennae!)
The wings are stiff and hold their shape permanently.
Thanks for looking!
This listing is for one moth, no photographic props are included.
