The Magpie Moth
This beautiful moth was taken from a Magpie Moth, I have replicated it pattern, colour and detailing into this textile/ fiber art sculpture, on both sides. On the front of the moth I have embroidered the detailing onto the wings and body, where as the back is fabric painted and stitched. The moth has six wire legs of which it stands on and two wire antenna. The wings are wired so the moth can be shaped up or down however you prefer.
The moth measurements 13cm wide (5 1/4") X 8cm (3 1/4") long X 3cm (1 1/4") high, when its wing are out flat. It can be used as a center piece in displays, put on a wall or easily adapted to a brooch or fashion accessory. Please note this is just for the moth the wood is not included.
