I know only one kind of insects treated as absolute symbol of beauty, butterflies People have problem with finding beauty of beetles, flies, cockroaches but butterfly is awesome for all.
Making artefacts with using this beings is more difficult than with other insects. Usually art shows items more beautiful than they are, but another important issue is contrariness, playing with senses. Taking it into account, beautification of butterfly would be without sense. The bigger chalange is making it uglier. Is it possible at all?
