Butterfly Art Ethics:
Please note - We DO NOT sell rare or endangered butterflies or insects! All our species come from Butterfly farms in places like Peru, Australia and Asia. These butterfly farms are a primary source of income for local people that would not normally be able to provide for their families. The insects are always allowed to live their normal life span (which is typically very short) and then euthanized quickly and ethically. These beautiful pictures are not only stunning but incredibly educational and inspiring. They make an amazing gift!
Due to the handmade nature of this product, coupon codes do not apply to Butterfly/Insect art.
