Papilio paris, the Paris peacock, is a species of swallowtail butterfly found in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia at altitudes of up to 1,500m.
Aside from the bright splash of emerald green, the wings appear black at first sight, but are sprinkled with green scales.
This butterfly has been prepared in the UK to museum standards and is displayed in a deep handmade shadowbox frame, mounted on white conservation-grade foam. The back of the frame is covered in really special Italian decorative paper, with a brass hook for hanging it on the wall (but it also stands perfectly on a mantlepiece or a table). It is completely sealed inside the frame and will last for generations.
