If you want to stand out from the crowd and have a unique home or office, you should look into the framed & mounted butterfly displays. In the paragraphs below, we are going to tell you about 2 of the common insects found in these displays.
How Does the Artist Get the Butterflies?
There are many different butterfly farms located around the world. On a normal basis, the normal lifespan of a butterfly is thirty days. Once the butterfly dies, the caretaker dries the body out and sends them to the artist. That's right, most of the butterflies you see in a frame have been purchased from a farm somewhere in the world, where the insect died of natural causes.
Now, let's take a look at some of the popular butterflies you will find on display.
The Blue Morpho Butterfly
This is a beautiful butterfly that is normally found in Central America, South America and Mexico. This breed right here is well known for being one of the largest butterflies in the world. They are very colorful and have black running along the edges of their wings.
Note: Some of the displays place the insect in a frame between two panes of glass -- this makes the framed & mounted butterfly display even more beautiful.
The Rainbow Butterfly
This is yet another beautiful butterfly and it is found in New Guinea. As the name "rainbow" suggests, it consists of a wide array of colors. Normally, there is a mixture of silver, green, blue and lavender.
Where Can We Purchase a Framed & Mounted Butterfly Display?
This isn't the type of art you will normally find in your local retail store and if you do, it will probably be a replica. If you want the real thing, you need to make your purchase on the Internet. There are many artists who are selling framed & mounted butterfly displays at great prices.
