  • The Peacock butterfly presented in a handmade glass dome with your choice of brown or black wooden base.

    The Peacock belongs to the Papilionidae family of butterflies. The butterfly is also known as the green swallowtail. The colours on the wings of some of these butterflies are metallic and are eye catchy especially when viewed from a particular angle. The remarkable feature of this butterfly’s wing is that it contains rows of very small concave surfaces that reflect light in many ways. For instance, the center of the concave surface reflects a yellow-green light and the edges reflect a blue light.

    Its wingspan reaches 12 –14 cm (4.7–5.5 in).
