'Ode to Autumn' Preserved Butterfly Dome

This special creation named 'Ode to Autumn' was inspired by the soft tones of Autumn and the beauty of the ever changing seasons. The metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly is one of the most profound and symbolic wonders of nature, and a also a gentle reminder that life can be short, but beautiful.


All the elements inside this glass dome are real including the preserved butterfly. All the butterflies used in Ladyfern creations have been ethically sourced, meaning they have passed naturally and were not harmed in any way for this purpose. They also have been set by myself into position to appear like they are still peacefully fluttering - something which can be extremely hard to do, given the brittle and intricate nature of these specimens.

This fully detailed curio contains a miniature vintage vase and a mixture of real life preserved seedpods and grasses, many of which were collected and preserved on our family property in country SA.



This collection of unique and beautiful specimens have been carefully secured to a wooden base and encased inside a glass dome - forever encaptured and preserved, it will bring many years of joy to those who gaze upon it with zero maintenance.


Dried florals are very popular choice of home decor at the moment and a great alternative to cut flowers which sadly deteriorate. Both a sustainable and artistic take on floristry, whilst breathing life into remnants of the past.


*Avoid placing in direct sun and exposure to moisture to help retain its colours over the years.


Measures approximately 27cm high.


Afterpay Available.
