Cristina Negria is well known and collected for her butterfly in ferns. She decorates each butterfly with a unique color combination and some have dots, some have stripes, some a bit smaller and larger. She is one of the 3 weaving Negria sisters, each highly collected for their rib-stitched pieces featuring colorful birds, butterflies, and other colorful motifs.
This butterfly is a smaller version of the normally very large butterfly motif, but she includes all of the details with wavy palms that seem to fall from a ring around the top, leaves finishing just before the base which is lined in a ring of butterflies. Completed in a single row of black at the top.
