Madagascan Moon Moth, Argema mittrei
Also called the Comet Moth, these endangered moths are huge with a wingspan of 8 inches wide. The adult moth cannot feed and only lives for 4-5 days for the sole purpose of reproducing. Because they live in the wet rain forests of Madagascar, their cocoons have drain holes so that the pupa inside will not drown. These large 5" x 7" high quality art cards are printed on card stock, come pre-folded, packed in a clear sleeve per 10 cards, and include one white envelope for each card. Cards are blank inside for a personalized message. Printed on recycled paper.
My mission as an artist is to inspire an appreciation for and curiosity about nature and its creatures by communicating the aesthetic beauty of this planet’s amazing creatures as they really are.
It is my hope that this appreciation will result in acts of empathy & stewardship towards these incredible creatures portrayed in my paintings.
