Mali in the City I - Eltham Copper Butterfly Story by Karen Rawady (detail) (14 August 2012). Instagram in-built camera app using iPhone 4 @ fixed 29mm (35mm equiv) and f/2.8, auto exposure. Hefe filter and frame.
Sponsored by Healesville Sanctuary, the design draws attention to the local Eltham Copper Butterfly, a threatened species. When viewed as a whole, this particular Mali sculpture tells the story of the fascinating interaction between the plant ‘sweet bursaria’, the ant ‘notoncus’ and the butterfly’s larvae.
