"Butterfly Collection #9" is a mixed media piece centered around a detailed depiction of a butterfly. The butterfly has large wings with intricate patterns in black and white, including spots and stripes that create a symmetrical design. Surrounding the butterfly is a layered collage background, integrating various map elements. This background has a muted color palette that contrasts with the starkness of the butterfly's wings. The outer edges of the piece exhibit a textured application of a pale hue, which frames the butterfly and adds depth to the overall presentation of the artwork. There is also an plant element that has been placed directly onto the composition, contributing to the sense of organic spontaneity that characterizes the piece.
