It’s Flashback Friday! Remember these? If one of your friends didn’t have a collection in kindergarten, you’ve surely seen them in your local Natural History Museum at some point during the last decade. There’s something gorgeously morbid about what can best be described as “butterfly taxidermy,” something artist Damien Hirst capitalized on big time with his million-dollar series of butterfly paintings featuring the beautiful bugs trapped in paint behind glass, as reported by The Inside Source early last December. If you’re looking to incorporate the look into your home, eBay’s got a swarm of selections you should check out.
