More about this digital file


Gleaming filament silk captures the light and gives life to the flower petals, leaves and shimmering wings of the blue mountain swallowtail.

“In the UK, Christmas decorations often tend to be of the familiar ‘robin, holly and ivy’ variety. It has been a real treat to be able to create something very different, but still with a festive theme! The Christmas bush explains itself, and the blue mountain swallowtail (Papilio Ulysses) reminds me so much of a decoration that graced our Christmas tree for many years when I was a child. To me, that is what Christmas traditions are all about – the old and the new, love and laughter, and memories of happy times." - Helen M Stevens
