"Butterfly Collection #2" shows a mixed media artwork with a butterfly as its central focus. The butterfly is depicted with detail and naturalistic coloration, featuring a deep purple hue with patterned wings accented with golden spots. The texture of the butterfly gives a realistic impression of both the solidity of the body and the delicate transparency of the wings. The butterfly is placed within a bordered square. This element has a textured, antiqued appearance, showcasing depth. Surrounding this central framed area is a background with layered textures and muted colors, incorporating elements of sheet music. Overall, the artwork seems to evoke themes of nature, contrasted with elements of human culture, given the incorporation of musical elements as part of its composition.
