About the sculpture

The sculpture incorporates light and movement and features 25 different-coloured butterflies made of steel and glass. The butterflies are around 60 centimetres across and inlaid with optical film to refract colour and paint, surrounding the landscape in light.

The design draws inspiration from local butterfly species found in Cardinia Shire’s healthland areas including Jalmenus evagoras also known as the imperial hairstreak or imperial blue and Oreixenica Correae or the Correa Brown.

Commissioned artist: Nick Athanasiou, Skunk Control
