This is a real Death's Head Hawkmoth specimen, spread and mounted into a black shadow-box frame with filigree corner accents. The background is a lovely gold velvet damask pattern.
The box measures roughly 7 x 4.5 inches.

The Death's Head Hawkmoth is most widely known for its appearance in the film "Silence of the Lambs"; they have markings on their upper body that resemble a human skull. Amazing species to have in your home! :)
