Coleopetra Flight Wall Adornment

  • $540.00

Coleoptera Flight is a stunning piece featuring elaborate metal work and the wing of the Atlas Moth, balancing architecture and organicism. The gorgeous warm desert hues of the Atlas Moth, one of the world’s largest moths, range from rich camel to deep chocolate, dusty rose, stone grey, and a cream linen white, which has a delicate translucency. Marbled and speckled, the patterns swirl inside the defined right angles of the square and two bookended rectangles, opening outward and poised like the hard shelled beetle opening to reveal its delicate wings, ready to take flight. Delicate chains hang down like fringe, giving a slight movement to the fixed materials above. The organic nature of the metal work connects the rigid lines of the glass by layers of graceful arcs, with contours curving endlessly out of one another.

This art is intended for wall adornment and is not suitable for wear.

This piece measures 4 1/4" in length by 3 1/4" in width and hangs a full 6 1/2" including the oxidized sterling chain detail.

Please note this item is MADE TO ORDER and therefore WILL NOT SHIP until 1-2 weeks after you place your order.

As this item is hand-made to order, each element (butterfly wing, feather, snakeskin, skull, etc.) is unique in its own way, and may vary slightly in the finished piece. There may also be a difference in size of up to 1/8". The focal-piece is constructed with lead-free silver solder, oxidized, and polished.

All of HartVariations materials are cruelty-free and ethically sourced with great care. We are dedicated to No-Harm principles in our work. Please visit the FAQ page of the website to learn more.

PIECE CARE: Please handle this piece with great care, avoid water and chemical cleaning products. To remove dust simply wipe with a soft cloth. Because of the stained glass medium we work in, we are able to use delicate materials from nature that are very heat-sensitive. Too much heat and the wings change color, sometimes losing the vibrant magic that makes them so special. The metal in our work is an alloy of silver and tin, which melts at a lower temperature than sterling. We 100% stand by our work and have sold thousands of pieces in the eight years we've been in business, with a very small number needing repair. The same way you would take care of a silk blouse, please consider the medium in the treatment of your piece and approach with intention and care.

SHIPPING: Please be sure to read the shipping and policies information before your purchase.
