giant embroidered moth 1 Giant Embroidered Moth

Illustrator and designer Jessica Bartram created a giant embroidered moth sculpture that is so realistic that her neighbors thought it was real when she placed it on a tree to take these pictures!

This Mooncream moth’s body is made from fur-pieces salvaged from the scraps bin at a fabric store, hot glue, wire and feathers. The wings are hand-embroidered and took approximately 30 episodes of the West Wing to complete (yes, I measure art-time by TV episodes, what of it?).
