The monarch butterfly is one of the most recognizable butterflies in the world. Its bright orange makes it easily recognizable and it is frequently called the king of butterflies. With long migration patterns, monarchs go through several generations as they travel across the continent each year.The basic frame of the butterfly is created using tin, which is powder-coated with a black finish and makes this piece safe to use outdoors. The edges of the frame are reinforced using thicker tin wire. The front of this piece is adorned in areas with capiz shell, an oyster native to the Philippines, before being hand-painted and sealed with a water-based sealant. The primary purpose of this oyster to provide a source of food, however, the shell is a sustainable by-product that can be used for decoration. The capiz shell subtly replicates the reflective qualities of butterflies in nature.
