Original Art work ! Madame Butterfly by Carolien Bosch
The beauty of nature translated in a beautiful story. Butterflies that were strategically placed to make a statement in contrast with the darkside of our environment…………..
“Captured in the moment where 2 worlds become one transformed into art”.
All of the insect specimens Madame Butterfly works with are raised on farms which help to preserve the valuable rainforest habitat by providing villagers an ethical income other than clearing virgin tropical rainforest. Raising insects to sell is sometimes the only incentive some indigenous people have to save the environment they live in.
To make a living the indigenous people can either poach in the rainforest or sell their land for retrieving palm oil. In both cases the rainforest isn’t preserved. With the farms there’s an incentive to preserve the rainforest, because the farms need the flora and fauna of the rainforest. You can’t farm butterflies without their natural habitat.
