Made in Australia

Also called the Papilio maackii, is widely held to be one of the most beautiful butterflies in Japan, covered with thousands of iridescent green or blue scales, the concentration of color in some areas, creates beautiful neon like waves. Their favorite food is the nectar of mikan trees, and other fruit trees in the mikan family, such as mandarin. They also drink nectar from azaleas. Like other swallowtail butterflies, Alpine blacks will congregate in large groups. The behavior related to mate selection, where mating partners are decided after an elaborate courtship dance. The alpine black swallowtail can be found in Central Asia, Japan, China and South Korea. The second butterfly on the bottom will vary depending on our available butterflies, but I always try to match the color pallet and harmony of each piece. I carved the wooden base to nicely fit our pair of butterflies in a dome, so that you can experience the 360 view of those beautiful creatures :)

Primary forests of the Amazon and Atlantic. Also adapted to breed in a wide variety of other forested habitats, for instance the dry deciduous woodlands of Nicaragua and secondary forests.

Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got it’s start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective”. As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from.
