African Butterfly Wing Art

Looking for some content to add on Weirdomatic,I found the beautiful art of Paul Caparatta. It seems that all these displays were made in Africa, entirely from dead butterfly wings collected from the ground. Extremely delicate and strangely beautiful, they represent small parts of the African world: from animals and birds to people, they are all images of African culture, tradition and beliefs. 

Paul Caparatta's works, framed or not, are for sale on Butterfly Utopia
