NZ Puriri Moth 3D sculptural embroidery.
This unique and perfectly camouflaged moth is one of New Zealand's largest species, with a wingspan of up to 15cm. I was lucky enough to find one of these stunning lichen green moths on my property, usually found under Puriri Trees, and I had the chance to study its intricate wing patterns, to photograph it, and began this design based upon a real specimen.
Carefully pinned onto perspex, and encased in a clear acrylic box like a preserved museum specimen.
Ready for hanging straight onto the wall. Each piece comes with its own certificate of authenticity.
