Kristjana's specimen trays are inspired by the classic Butterfly specimen trays, displaying real life butterflies. Kristjana has used the same concept, but in stead of using real butterflies she uses her colourful paper butterflies, folded and some layered, and pinned in place on either white or gold base. Each specimen try features a hero animal and the artists signature on a decorative banner. Kristjana created her first Specimen trays for her Pop Up shop in Harrods in April 2017.
Framed dimensions of trays:
Large: 62 x 52 x 7 cm
Small: 37 x 27 x 7 cm
The Specimen trays come in either an ornate brown wooden frame or an ornate white wooden frame.
Commissioning Specimen trays & Personalisation
When commissioning Specimen trays, the client can choose sizes and quantity of trays. Colour scheme for the butterflies can also be requested and whether the base is gold or white and the frames brown or white. Quantity and sizes will be reflected in the price. Single butterflies or hero animals can also be characterised to reflect a person, for example a member of your family.
