Infant Jesus “Painting” Made of Butterfly Wings

My parents just got back from a trip to Lourdes and Prague. One of the many trinkets they brought us was the following image:

This “painting” is a portrayal of the Infant Jesus of Prague, handmade in Africa, using BUTTERFLY WINGS!

Pretty creative, right? At least I thought so… There’s no paint or dye whatsoever – all the coloring comes from different types of butterflies.

Here’s a closer view of the head. The level of detail they are able to create with the butterfly wings is amazing!

Infant Child Jesus, pray for us!
