This magical, tour-de-force collection from Michael Aram arose out of his fascination with the Ginkgo Biloba tree, whose double leaf evokes a butterfly's wings. "The first time I saw this tree, it literally looked like it had been completely overtaken by butterflies... as if they would all take flight the moment I walked too close or made a noise. The idea that the leaves could evoke the beauty of butterflies was magical to me, like trees that can metamorphose from flora to fauna in the blink of an eye."
