The KHAMAMA Noctua 1850 Grand Humidor features butterfly wings of the species Caligo atreus, also called the yellow-edged giant owl, due to its great wing span. The species is native to Middle America from Mexico to Peru. The wings used for this art work are from a sustainable butterfly farm. The Haute Art de Papillon - butterfly wing marquetry - features three different circular patters. The colour scheme is showcasing many hues of dark brown to light orange and big round eyes in contrast to camouflage zig-zag. The center is dominated by light brown to orange bold lines of the two central circles.
The butterfly wing marquetry of this box is handmade with the South American butterfly species Caligo atreus. Caligo is Latin and means darkness refering to the fact that this butterfly species is only flying at nighttime. Atreus is ancient Greek and means fearless. In Greek mythology, Atreus was the king of Mycenae in the Peloponnese and the father of Agamemnon and Menelaus. The two brothers started the famous Troyan war by raising a fleet of a thousand ships and going to Troy to secure the return of Helen, the wife of king Menelaus and world’s most beautiful woman.Make an inquiry
The butterfly wing pattern was designed with four dynamically turning wheels and two centerally crossing parts inspired by the compasses one would find on antique maps. The huge black spots which are circled with a yellow border seem to resemble burning cigars.Contact us
