Turquoise Butterfly Map Display

This natural history display vividly illustrates the butterfly’s natural territory with a digitally scanned antique map as a backdrop. The original map was engraved on copper plates and hand colored in 1700's. The displayed butterfly is a South American butterfly that is a swift and powerful flyer, making it one of the fastest butterflies in the world.

MY STORY____________________________________________
I have a graduate degree in conservation biology and love teaching about and showcasing the animals I love. Obviously the environment is very important to me and that is why I only use farm-raised insects that have lived out their life cycle. Butterfly farms are an important tool in rainforest conservation and you can learn more about them in my profile.

ABOUT BUG UNDER GLASS_____________________________
While working in the entomology departments of various natural history museums I was amazed by their massive insect collections. However, I was disappointed these collections were behind closed doors and the public rarely got to view them. 
Bug Under Glass was started to help make these creatures more accessible to the public while educating about their unique lives. I believe if more people learn about the incredible creatures in threatened habitats, they may be more willing to protect them.

Frequently asked questions about BugUnderGlass

Like all fine artwork, avoid direct sunlight and extreme humidity.
Yes, please contact me with your idea and I can give you a quote.
My insects come from sustainable conservation farms/ranches around the world. I do not sell rare, endangered or insects recognized as unsustainable (Dragonflies, Bats, rare beetles).
By linking environmental stewardship and economic development, butterfly farming positively impacts threatened habitats as well as human well-being. Currently used by conservation organizations, such as the Nature Conservancy and WWF, Butterfly farming helps save rainforest habitat by providing villagers an alternative income to agricultural farming and logging, which clears tropical forest. for more info Google "butterfly farming"
Since these displays are professionally made using UV blocking glass (so colors won't fade) and archival mounting boards - they can potentially last forever if treated with care. Most sellers are hobbyiest and DO NOT use UV glass or use proper materials - -and they will not last.
