This is a craft product that I invented and developed in 1992. It was decorative, fun, and educational and sold nationwide in numerous retail outlets and catalogs.
Many of the specimens included are extremely rare. This kit allows people to own a world class butterfly collection without any real butterflies being destroyed.
The assembled butterflies are so realistic they fooled entomologists when the kit was featured at the 1992 Entomological National Conference in Dallas, Texas. All specimens were photographed from the Whitten Entomological Collection in Costa Rica.
This project won first place in the Gallery of Superb Printing in 1996.
