Featuring two differing butterfly species within the one bell jar, the first, an eastern orange albatross, native to Indonesia, is painted in an eye-catching blood orange hue. The contrasting common yeoman possesses tawny orange, almost golden, wings which beat rapidly as it flies around its environment.
Suspended from the bell jar’s dome, a pendulum acts as an apparatus from upon which the butterflies land, an allusion to how life hangs in the balance.
In a passive state, the butterflies calmly inhabit the glass bell jar. Upon interaction however, they excitedly flutter about, at times landing gracefully on the pendulum, whilst at others, simply knocking straight into the objects.
