"Sangaris Prism" by Christoper Marley


Christopher Marley (American, b. 1969)

Only one genus of truly solid red butterfly exists and that is Cymothoe of central Africa. Though relatively common in Central African Republic, Cameroon, Gabon, Tanzania, and Nigeria, this particularly delicate, aggressive butterfly is rarely encountered in pristine condition. Conflicts and competition among newly emerged adults quickly deteriorate the aesthetic qualities of Cymothoe, therefore, only freshly emerged specimens can be utilized.

Each Pheromone piece is designed by artist Christopher Marley to create a singular union of exceptional organic artifact and crisp, elegant aesthetic. Preserved compositions on archival materials are hermetically sealed to ensure many years of enjoyment. 

Sustainably collected insects.
