This piece was created with the intention of blurring the lines between taxidermy and art. This case previously belonged to the Natural History Museum, housing entomology species. The insects in this case contained were papilio polytes. I re-created the butterflies housed in this case with my own imagery created using vintage Playboy Magazines. I reworked the imagery into symbols of power and strength, de-sexualising and empowering the female form. This is a limited edition physical entomology cabinet that is made to order using various collaged butterflies made from found papers and vintage Playboy magazines.
