Geometer Moth (Eucyclodes gavissima)
This brightly coloured moth can be found in India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, western China, Taiwan, Sumatra and Borneo.
I combine a range of knitting techniques to recreate different species of moths. Blending together fine stitches and colourful yarns to capture their beauty.
Presented in a dark wood box frame this would make a great addition to any home. The label has the common name and latin name as you might see in a museum display.
