These stunning textile creatures are the work of the very talented Yumi Okita. With her beautiful mind and very skilled fingers alone, she manages to sew, embroider and stitch together different fabrics to form gorgeous moths and butterflies...
The textures, colours and minute details make them incredibly life-like and alluring. We can just imagine their wings starting to flutter as they take flight off into the garden.
But we have to admit, with their giant antennas and spindly insect legs, we can’t help but feel a little a little scared of these bewildering beauties. Some span almost a foot wide, making them dramatically bigger than the typical garden variety we are accustomed too.
Each fibre sculpture is inspired from the realism of nature then manipulated into the world of imagination. Click through to visit Yumi Okita’s Etsy Store here.
