The Moonset, is one of our most mysterious looking butterfly, with the wings dark like the forest at night, a moonlight laying its light on a still water surface. It's what i see when I look at the Moonset. Also called the Great Blue Hookwing, it inhabits rainforest at the foothills of the eastern Andes (South america), at altitudes between about 400-800 metres above sea level. This magnificent butterfly spends most of its time high in the canopy, but sometimes descends to settle on the lower foliage of trees. When settled the wings are usually held upward, displaying the dead leaf underside, but in the late afternoon when temperatures drop, the butterfly will sometimes bask with wings outspread. I carefully displayed it in a small dome, so that you can see it from every angle and to give you the best experience of what it would look like in the wild. Small butterfly domes make excellent gifts, they don't take much space and look great on desk or shelve.

SULLEN CLOTHING

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.
