Giant Life-Like Moths And Butterflies Made Of Embroidered Fabric by Yumi Okita

Yumi Okita, a talented North Carolina-based artist, creates beautiful embroidered art depicting large moths, the less popular but no less beautiful cousin of the ubiquitous butterfly.

Okita’s creations, replete with fur, eyes, legs, antennae, and finely-embroidered wing patterns, strike a fine balance between artistry and realism. There’s a wonderful tension between the beauty of her work and the unsettling creepy-crawly furriness of a giant bug – her creations can reach up to almost a foot in width.

To check out more of Okita’s moths and other insect creations (like a cuddly cicada), check out her Etsy!
