Luna Lovewitch Enchanted Creatures - Salamis Parhassus Butterfly
local_offer

Also known as Forest Mother-of-Pearl. Known for its unusual greenish white pearlescent colouring, this large Nymphalid is one of four which comprise the genus Protogoniomorpha. The colours change depending on angle to pearlescent white/green with tinges of pink and purple.

Butterflies represent transformation on all levels, they show us how we can go within ourselves to dissolve old forms and morph, rebuilding and evolving ourselves as part of the essential process of growth and renewal. Seeing one is a sign that positive change is transpiring, and brave forces are watching over you. 

This spectacular framed taxidermy butterfly is the perfect oddity or curio for any home, office, business & bedroom. Or the most unique gift for your gothic/ alternative witchy loved one!

Size approx total frame size 14.5cm height 14.5cm width 5cm depth

This beautiful specimen can be viewed in person at Westfield Chermside store, however all our retail stores in Brisbane, Morayfield Shopping Centre, Westfield Chermside and Orion Springfield Central have a big selection of Luna Lovewitch Enchanted creatures including butterflies, spiders and various other insects. Video calls can be provided should you wish to view our full collection, calls are by appointment and during business hours.

Every Luna Lovewitch Enchanted creature has been lovingly and painstakingly hand crafted using ethically, and responsibly sourced Butterflies, scorpions, spiders and other insects.

All frames are fumigated and are professionally prepared. As this is a natural product book lice may occur in your frame. Book lice are present in most environments, do not carry disease and are best dealt with by following the instructions below:

  • These tiny insects may be detected by black dust underneath the bug. ( Please note not all black dust is from mites - some dust may occur from material that has shed off the body during transport ). If you see tiny mites running around within the frame immediately place frame inside a plastic bag and put into freezer for a minimum of 72 hours then left out for a period of 7 days then repeat the freezing for 72 hours ( this will then kill any remaining eggs ). If you have a collection constant monitoring is highly recommended to avoid these tiny insects attacking your specimen. Keep framed specimens out of direct sunlight and keep in low humid areas. This will prevent mould and help prevent book lice.
  • Mould growing on your specimen. This may occur during high humid / rainy conditions where low air flow, humidity and sunlight combined may cause condensation which may cause mould. This may occur on one or all of your specimens. 
  • Open back up ( leave hook side on ) carefully brush the mould off with small brush ( eg. makeup brush ) and leave out for 24 hours in a nice dry spot. Watch for ants. Clean glass whilst open – just in case any mould spores there. Also if you see any mould spores on the backboard gently brush away. Then tape back up with craft tape.
  • Correct care for your framed insect specimen will ensure many years of enjoyment. Do not leave unattended in box / on wall for long periods of time without monitoring. We will assume no liability for failure to comply with the instructions above.

We source our creatures from research and breeding facilities who collect the butterflies, insects and arachnids at the end of their life, no harm was done to any creature for the purpose of this art.

Luna Lovewitch Enchanted Creature collections are made by a local artist with a passion for blending art and nature. Each and every statement piece is hand crafted and unique with no two being identical, making each one a truly magical creation!

*Please note as every insect is different the framed enchanted creature you receive may differ slightly from main image used. Please contact us at info@tcaww.com.au if you would like actual photos of your specimen!
