Swallowtail Caterpillar Mandala Art Card – Camouflage

$4.95$5.95

Black swallowtail caterpillar mandala art card features sixteen striped caterpillars reaching out toward magical fairy lights. This square card is 5.25″ by 5.25″, a nice little size for giving, framing, or meditation. This is the perfect greeting or frameable card for the pollinator lovers and magical people in your life. The energy of this mandala is so sweet and uplifting.

Includes envelope and free shipping. If you’ll be mailing your card to someone and would like me to add the correct USPS first class stamp to the envelope, please choose that option from the menu. An additional charge will apply.

This black swallowtail caterpillar mandala art card is digitally printed using archival pigment inks on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. The print quality is truly something to see; the paper is truly something to feel. Folded card is 5.25" by 5.25" and comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The photograph I used to create this mandala art is printed on the back of the card with the photo location. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This swallowtail caterpillar art card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.

Postage. Because irregularly shaped mail, like this square swallowtail caterpillar card, must be canceled by hand, the U.S. Postal Service requires extra postage to deliver them. Special "butterfly stamps" carry the exact right postage to mail your card within the U.S. If you would like me to stamp the envelope with a butterfly stamp so it's ready for you to mail, please choose that option from the menu.

About the Art. I created this piece, titled Camouflage, with no intention other than to work with a kind of cool photo of a black swallowtail caterpillar. The caterpillar is hanging down from the umbel of a flower I planted several years ago but can't seem to identify. The plant is in the carrot family, so is perfect forage for black swallowtail caterpillars. It gets tall, five to six feet tall, and seems to be a biennial, living as a low rosette of leaves one year, and the next exploding upward and flowering profusely before dying back and starting over from the seed produced. If you'd like more black swallowtails in your garden, plant extra parsely, dill, carrots, and definitely this plant, which I think might be an angelica (or could be a weed I've nutured for several years.) If you'd like more magic in your life, definitely meditate on the finished mandala. It carries such a sweet, uplifting energy of just being where you find yourself.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
