Enigma Variations Collection: Antique Silver-Plated Teapot Finial with a Specimen Butterfly in a Glass Display Dome
The ancient greeks believed that a new human soul was born every time an adult butterfly emerged from its cocoon.
A lovely specimen butterfly, from an old museum collection, is placed on an antique silver-plated teapot finial in the shape of blackberry. This miniature world is presented under a glass dome.
Dimensions: height 11cm
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.
