Emmanuel Boitier - Apollo
The Apollo seems to be the fruit of the unlimited imagination of a Japanese painter. In small keys of powder, its wings are a real painting, even more a masterpiece. Black on white, as an elegant calligraphy, and red ocelles, just like a hanko, the signature of the artist.
But beauty does not guarantee eternity, the situation of this mountainous butterfly becomes worrisome. It disappears inexorably from the lowest massifs: global warming appears to be one of the main driving forces.
