The Antiquarian Collection is inspired by curiosity cabinets from days gone by: it hails from entomology cases preserved in dusty attics, moth wings faded with time to a ghostly whisper. Each specimen was once a bright jewel, brought to a Wunderkammer from far across the world. Yet the ages reduce even the most brilliant jewels to shadows, and each moth in this set is now a pale reflection of its living self. This pallor lends them an ethereal beauty, and their cream and rust colored wings shine brilliantly in any specimen case.
These paper moths are printed double-sided on heavy-weight shimmer paper, which gives them the appearance of mother-of-pearl. They are expertly lasercut with a precise level of detail (you can see the individual little antennae, just like on a real moth!) They are based on real specimens, and accurately depict their size and color, or in this case, lack-there-of.
