Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Papilio aegeus, also called Orchard Swallowtail is a simple coloured butterfly from Australasia / Indomalaya ecozone (Australia). The first description was in 1805 by Donovan. The real butterfly has a wingspan of about 10–12cm, a big member of the family PAPILIONIDAE.

Painted to a true likeness in acrylic with ink added over the paint using a calligraphy nib. These small framed paintings are a bright artistic take on real mounted taxidermy butterfly specimens, a celebration of the beauty of the natural world.

Framed in a 23mm wide classic flat pure matt black frame, made from solid pine. Crystal clear 2mm acrylic glazing. Shatter proof and 20% clearer than glass. The painting is signed on the front and comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity attached to the back of the frame. The frame is complete with an acid free double mount and backing board, which protects the artwork.
