The Sights of Paris - Butterfly Framed art
Love this


Ooh la la.....

In this magnifique one-of-a-kind piece, each of the Butterflies are built with words and images from the sights of Paris.

Pastel blue, yellow, green and.........brown, it can only be from the 70's

Each of the nine butterflies are from an illustrated 1972 Michelin Paris guide book. Illustrations include....the Arc du Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, The Eiffel Tower and Musée de l'Homme. The beautiful coloured isometric drawings marry well to the French text. There is a beautiful bright kitsch quality to this piece.

The butterfly words and images are painstakingly chosen, hand cut, hand sewn and attached. In this example, the Butterflies sit on a yellow/green Pastel paper.

The piece comes in a white wood shadow box measuring 28.5cm x 23.5cm which can be either freestanding or hung.

The butterfly art really works for me, from a distance it's one pretty thing, then close up, it's a deeper level of detail. I can't get enough of symmetry and detail.

If this isn't exactly what you are looking for, I completely welcome custom projects, Imagine a piece like this but with any content special to you, I will source any book, maps, lyrics, quotes or anything you require.

Thanks so much for looking at 'The sights of Paris'

*********Please note, the exact frame photographed was damaged when I received it and I think this may be visible in the pics, if purchasing this piece you will get a brand new frame in perfect condition.********
