Butterpillars are the result of my experimentation using Butterfly DNA. On attempting to give them human intelligence I somehow stopped the development to the ‘fly’ stage of their life. They do become beautifully patterned but never grow big enough wings, and therefore never become Butterflies, they instead stay as Butterpillars. After an accident in the lab, hundreds escaped and I now spend most of my time trying to locate them and find them good homes.
These little critters have been hand cast from an original sculpt and each on is hand painted. These measure just under an inch tall and 1.5″ wide.
