About This Item

Portland, Maine:: Rebecca Goodale,, 2009.. Edition of 6. 5.5 x 5.5 x 3.25" cloth-covered box holds a pamphlet and interior lid that can be lifted to display a string assembly on which hang 5 butterfly cutouts (printed on a Gocco printer). The outer box has an interior notch for the interior lid to rest upon. Five cotton strings attach to underside of interior lid and bottom of the box. A cotton loop on top of interior lid lifts the butterfly display. Laid in on top of the interior lid a 5 x 5" hand-stitched two-leaf title and colophon pamphlet with text handwritten in ink. The outer cloth-covered box, a drop lid clamshell box, has a cotton thread and bone closure. Rebecca Goodale: "Sleepy Duskywing was added to Maine's threatened species list in 2007. It is a small brown butterfly. "After opening the box and pulling the string upward five of the butterflies float up out of the box. With a string from the ceiling the loop on the interior lid can be tethered in place for display." Colby Maine Butterfly Checklist: "Five of the 114 species are believed extirpated from Maine and ten have been listed as state endangered or special concern by Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife." Sleepy Dusky wing is one of those in the endangered list.
