Apatura Iris Butterfly Pin
2″ tall x 3″ wide.
Taking its name from the Greek work for a rainbow, the Iris has been an inspiration for some legendary painters. Leonardo da Vinci, Durer, Renoir, Cezanne, Gauguin, Claude Monet, were all inspired by this beautiful flower but perhaps the most famous would be the ‘Irises’ by Van Gogh, selling for over 50 million dollars. The three sectioned symbol Fleur de Lys, is an ancient representation of the Iris flower and was a mark of the French Royalty.
