I was inspired by the paper craft of butterflies on a wall or background. I had this beautiful piece of slightly spalted maple and I could just see the butterflies flying through the two knot holes. The ebony colour of the majority of butterflies was chosen to match the background board. The one yellow butterfly was inspired because there is always one of a kind in a crowd! The yellow too was chosen to match the background and then afterwards it made sense as the monarch butterfly is black and yellow!!

Dimensions are approximately: 50 inches wide;21 inches tall at the tallest point;8 inches deep at the deepest point
The butterflies are lightly stained with ebony and then the tops are sprayed with a coat of poly urethane. The one of a kind butterfly is painted yellow and finished the same way. They are held in place with galvanised wire. The background piece of maple is finished with 6 coats of semi gloss poly urethane.
