I am completely wowed by Amsterdam-based artist Anne Ten Donkelaar.  The flower constructions are meticulously crafted from pressed flowers and photographs.  The butterflies were salvaged by Anne and given a new life.  The damaged butterflies were given new wings and bodies inspired by various aspects of the butterfly’s species.  I find it all gorgeous and intriguing.  Enjoy!
