Also known as the "stained glass moth" , this lovely creature is a portrait in leather and luminous acrylic. The brooch is close ( 4.25 inches in wingspan, 4 inches head to tips of its tails ) to the size of the actual moth. The base color , a gentle pale green, is overlaid with thin glazes of interference colors in blue, red, and violet. Interference colors have no actual hue-- they refract light at particular angles, and so appear and disappear as the piece moves--a magical effect! The body is made of a fleece fabric, and the feathery antennae are carefully fashioned of leather to be as realistic appearing as possible. On the reverse side, a good quality pinback is faced over by thin lining leather. Touches of purple , copper, and bronze finish the edges of this lady of Spain and the Pyrenees.
