From afar you would be forgiven for thinking that this antique display case contains real butterflies. What you actually see is a witty combination of classic origami and an entomological collectors' display.

What would appear to be species labels in fact describe the papers from which they are constructed. Each 'species' is laid out with multiples in a vertical row, with a version in reverse at the bottom of the case. This is how it would have been in a genuine collection display.
