Enigma Variations Collection: Antique Miniature Shakespeare's 'Loves Labours Lost' with a Butterfly in a Display Dome

The ancient greeks believed that a new human soul was born every time an adult butterfly emerged from its cocoon.

This beautiful vintage specimen butterfly is placed on a tiny circa 1920/30s leather bound volume of Shakespeare's Loves Labours Lost. This miniature world is presented in a glass dome with a painted wooden base.

Dimensions: height 11.5cm

Enigma Variations

Unexpected juxtapositions: where antique artefacts have a poetic dialogue with the natural. 

Due to the fragility of the glass dome and its contents we have reluctantly decided not to offer a delivery service on this creation. Please purchase and arrange collection with the gallery. Thank you.
