Papilio Antimachus is the biggest African butterfly. Its wingspan is from 18 to 25 cm. Papilio Antimachs was first described by British entomologist Dru Drury in 1782.
These butterflies live in rainforests, males often gather to big crowds on blossoming plants, females prefer to stay on tree tops and very seldom appear on open areas.
This beaded butterfly is woven of 9 colours.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished butterfly, a palette of needed toho beads and 7 graphs, from picking the first beads up to the finished piece with showing the way of the thread in each graph. The colours in each bead are numbered for easier work. Such butterfly can be used as a brooch, a hair slide, a central part of a necklace or simply as a nice souvenir.
