Art Splendidly Imitating Life. Frequently exhibited at The Renwick Gallery, home of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s craft and decorative arts program, Bovano sculptures are one-of-a-kind artworks whose glass-fused copper designs and jewel-like colors make them coveted collectibles. Showcasing their decades-old artistry, this Bovano Butterfly Sculpture depicts a red spotted purple butterfly visiting a Turk’s-cap lily. Copper, glass, brass, wood. Handmade in the U.S.A. 8"h. x 6"l. x 6"w.
The indoor tropical garden of our National Museum of Natural History’s Butterfly Pavilion—with its exotic plants and three hundred species of living butterflies—inspired this radiantly beautiful butterfly collection of gifts, apparel, décor and jewelry.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
