This piece showcases a bright, blue body strong in aqua tones. The upper wings glisten from the inlay of shell work; each shell absorbing and reflecting light differently than its neighbor. The lower wings contrast with a softer, satin, blue finish. As added detail, the metal in the lower wing is pressed to represent the artist's view of the wing's components. Beads radiate from the center of the butterfly, almost making it feel as if this butterfly is transforming from a flower into its animal form.
