A stunning map based artwork created from three dimentional paper butterflies
A special gift for a lover of maps or travel, this unique picture has hand cut paper butterflies in varying sizes created from and following a map of The British Isles set on a white background. The raised wings of the butterflies give the map an unusual three dimensional quality. Each piece is created as a unique artwork, with butterfly sizes varying whilst its pattern follows the map.
This artwork is part of a wider series based on maps, charts, books and music, inspired by my fascination with museum collections.
A personalised piece can be created with a heart shape highlighting a chosen town, city, or meaningful location on the British Isles. Alternatively a bespoke piece can be made with a map of another country making a wonderful gift or special artwork for your home.
