Damien Hirst's Butterfly Art.

Bad boy of art Damien Hirst's [wiki] new artwork looks like an ornately done stainglass, but upon closer look, it's made out of thousands and thousands of butterfly wings!

This one above is called Aubade, Crown of Glory 2006. http://www.gagosian.com/exhibitions/beverly-hills-2007-02-damien-hirst/ | Another one

Previously on Neatorama: Saddam Shark by Damien Hirst


His restaurant 'Number 11' has a piece just life this covering it's walls, and it's amazing, great symmetry. It's located in Ilfracombe, South West England.

the links don't say anything about the media, except that they're paintings, so actually, they would seem to be made up of "images of butterfly wings" not actually butterfly wings. That was my concern, too.

Check out the comments on supertouch. There is a lot of debate about whether or not he stole his ideas from another artist.

I actually saw a couple of these in Los Angeles at LA County Museum of Art. They are absolutely real butterfly wings. They are breathtaking. I have no idea how he got so many butterflies either.
