A Kaleidescope of Butterflies

Did you know that a group of butterflies may be properly called a kaleidescope? Such a pretty and fitting description of the flashing colors and fleeting glimpses. Just like in real life, with real butterflies, if you blink — they’re gone!

In this custom snow globe, a single metal butterfly rests delicately on a flower petal of repurposed bronze and copper. But shake the globe — if you are keen of eye — and you may see a kaleidescope of butterflies rain all around for a moment, then vanish again.
