Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly. Felted and hand embroidered butterfly.
Each butterfly has a different and individual mount and background making it unique.
Interesting facts about butterflies is that each kind has it's specific plant.
The Large Tortoiseshell was a common butterfly in Victorian times, but is now considered to be extinct in the UK. Sightings are usually migrants or escapees from captivity. It is thought that a range of factors caused its decline, including parasitism, climate change and Dutch Elm Disease which devastated its main foodplant. Unfortunately all butterflies species are in decline in the UK and considered at risk of extinction.
The technique used is felting and free hand embroidery plus a bit of painting. Each frame is different creating a unique piece.
Size approx. 8.8x8cm
Presented in a wood frame with glass size 18x18 cm.
