The original artwork is a handpainted and stitched/embroidered silk scroll.

"Panaxia" was inspired by a natural spectacle that takes place in Rhodes, Greece each year:
on the western side of the island there is the Valley of the Butterflies. During August, thousands of butterflies of the genus Panaxia (species Quadripunctaria Poda) overwhelm the valley in order to reproduce. During the rainy season, the caterpillars feed on the foliage of the Mediterranean bushes. Towards the end of May, the metamorphosis begins and thousands of butterflies appear. They move constantly towards areas of highest humidity and finally arrive at the valley.
Due to several factors this natural wonder is endangered: disturbance by visitors. The butterfly cannot eat because it has no stomach. As a butterfly it purely survives from the energy stored from its previous stage as a caterpillar - if it is disturbed it has to fly all day consuming its energy which is needed for the mating season.

In order to make my art work available for everyone I decided to get the originals made as fine art prints on real 420 g/m cotton canvas, finished with a matte varnish. At the moment I am offering here various sizes - please see below. Smaller and larger ones can be made available. Each print will be made on demand only so please allow a processing time of 3-5 working days. If you need a different size I will enter a custom order for you.

I recommend to frame these prints in an additional frame with a broad border for even a better look (as in the example) and you will truly have a piece of fine art.

Other sizes can be done of course and the prints will be shipped rolled. If you wish the print to be mounted on stretcher frame there will be much higher shipping fees unfortunately. Please ask before you enter the order.

Price examples for Giclée prints on 420 g/m² cotton canvas:

16" x 24" (40 x 60 cm) 242 US$ + shipping fee (rolled)***
20" x 30" (50 x 75 cm) 300 US$ + shipping fee (rolled)
24" x 36" (60 x 90 cm) 337 US$ + shipping fee (rolled)
