Original artwork description:

An original piece from the series “Please do not kill butterflies”, pins and oil on paper, mounted on a wood panel.

Please, all these dead animals ... Of course, not every one of us can or want to become vegetarian. Sure, in some cases, maybe, the medical experimentation needs them to get results. But we really have to kill them for our frivolous activities? ... Is it necessary to have so many pink pigs die in front of a camera? Do we really need to dissect sharks in formaldehyde, to starve stray dogs tied to a chain in the corner of a gallery, or to make innocent ants go crazy in twisted tubes of plexiglas? To make these drawings, no butterfly was killed.

Other features:

Finishing: protective varnish
Certificate of Authenticity: included, with signature of the artist on photograph
Signed: on the front, bottom center
Surface of the paper: smooth

Materials used:

oil
