This item is a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted, museum-quality display containing a sustainably sourced Morpho menelaus butterfly from Suriname. The display was carefully designed to complement the gorgeous coloration of this butterfly using the finest acid-free, archival grade materials and is housed in a beautiful solid wood, 8”x10” blue frame. 

Not only is this display aesthetically pleasing, but it is also framed using techniques that promote durability and long-term preservation:

  • The high-quality materials meet criteria found in the international standards and guidance followed by museums including ISO 18916, ISO 18902, and ASTM B117-03.
  • Ultra-protective, museum-grade glass provides 99% UV protection to prevent severe color loss from fading, embrittlement, and deterioration – ensuring the specimen will retain its appearance for many years to come.
  • All components in the display are sealed using a permanent, aluminum vapor barrier tape, creating a stable microclimate that prevents degradation from heat, pollution, and moisture. An additional seal is created by the acid-free paper securely attached to the back of the display.
  • Metal D-rings attached to the back of the frame ensures that the display can be hung safely and securely.
