 I love this picture. This is made from real butterflies, and was made with the help of assitants (as is often the case, similar to how Andy Warhol worked with The Factory). This is a life-affirming work, and the series was based on some of the Psalms, a lovely idea. I like the intricate details, the superb use of colours, the enlightened theme and the femininity to the work. It reminds me of stained glass windows (harking back to a religious theme) as well as antique doilies. Painstaking and gorgeous, wouldn't you just love to own this?
