Papilio blumei Real Taxidermy Butterfly in Handmade Museum Quality Frame
This butterfly is found only on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. The arresting colouration is due not to pigmentation but to the effect of refraction light bouncing off the intricate microscopic structures in the scales themselves. Scientists have attempted to replicate the metallic and iridescent colouring as it could be used in anti-forgery technology for banknotes and credit cards. The butterfly has been expertly prepared by hand to museum standards, and is mounted on conservation-grade foam in a hand-made, beautifully crafted case backed with Italian decorative paper. Absolutely ideal for wedding presents, Christmas and birthday presents, home decoration If you have any queries, or would like to request a different specimen, please get in touch!
