A real cicada wing was traced to reveal every vein & line. The design was then laser cut onto thick brass, making the spindly lines become the framework to a pair of beautiful golden wings. The brass has a brushed texture & is smoothed along the sides. The metal will get an aged patina with time, or I'm happy to give it a spray of varnish to help preserve the bright tones. The back of one is signed with my signature. The wings are a mirror image of each other. The wing portion measures 2" long. With earwires they measure about 2.5" (6.5cm) They come packaged in a little gift box, perfect for giving.
