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
We are passionate about nurturing the planet, our environment and all wildlife and therefore only endorse ethical and sustainable practices.
The insects we use are sourced from unwanted vintage collections.
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.
