A beautiful watercolour butterfly alongside a classic French literaty quote.
As featured on Sky Living's new show "Styled to Rock"!
"Il faut bien que je supporte deux ou trois chenilles si je veux connaître les papillons."
"I must support two or three caterpillars if I want to know the butterflies."
This beautiful quotation is from the classic French children's book "The Little Prince". It would make a lovely gift for new parents or for a special mum.
The hand painted watercolour butterfly is available in Aqua, Sunburst and Light Green.
The watercolour butterfly is totally hand painted, so may appear a bit different each time. The lovely old book pages are framed in ethical wood and gift wrapped in a beautiful old road map. The quotation is printed using a hand drawn font made exclusively for wall envy art, and the original book pages make each one unique.
The black wooden frames are handmade in Northamptonshire using wood sourced from sustainably managed forests. There’s no glass so you can feel the lovely old page. The frames stand up by themselves or hang flush to the wall. They look great stood on a bookshelf. The old books come from local charity shops and second hand book dealers.
14cm x 20cm
There is approx 0.3cm of black frame showing around the page, and the frame is 3cm deep.
