One of the most beautiful butterflies in the world (graphium weiskei) comes in two with this natural history museum display.

My insect displays are all built to museum standards which means they are sealed for protection with a hard backing and not with mat board, made with Acid & lignin free archival papers and comes with a hand cut museum label on back.

WE FRAME WITH UV BLOCKING GLASS:
UV rays are one of the most significant sources of degradation in museum artwork so we use Tru-Vue Conservation Clear UV blocking glass which blocks 99% of UV rays so you can enjoy your insect art for decades.

FRAMED INSECT DISPLAY DETAILS:
► 9x11x1.25 inch gallery quality shadowbox frame. (choose frame color: black, walnut, white)
► Tru-Vue UV blocking conservation glass (so colors & details won’t fade)
► Archival materials (acid and lignin free mounting papers)
► Sturdy hook to hang on wall (or frame can stand on its own)
► Natural history story about the specimen on a vintage style museum label.
► Handmade in Sonoma County California by an entomologist.

SHIPPING:
Ships in well protected box within 1-4 business days with tracking number.


ABOUT THE INSECTS I USE:
With my unique background as a professionally trained entomologist & a Master’s degree in Conservation biology, I DO NOT work with rare or endangered species and only use sustainably/farmed/widely available species. A majority of my specimens I use are breed on insect farms that raise insects for live flying butterfly displays, zoos and collectors. These farms are endorsed and sometimes run by conservation groups (like WWF and Nature Conservancy) because they promote forest conservation by giving local populations a sustainable income that does not result in forest destruction, like agricultural farming or logging.

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.
