WW2 Pineapple grenade embellished in real American dollar bills, meticulously cut covering the surface of the grenade, Bran then places a real delicate green Ulysses butterfly on top.
This echoes inequality and contrast between an extremely dangerous man-made weapon and a natural organism. Explosively Delicate is a beautiful piece which can be placed anywhere to remind us that nature always wins through world conflicts and upheaval and that humans should forever have hope in their hearts that love conquers all.
This art piece is part of a small edition and is displayed in a minimalistic acrylic display case.
Art piece measurement (in display case): 140mm x 200mm x 140mm

All butterflies are ethically sourced by reputable Lepidopterists and the artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Bran has attached securely a 14k gold-plated badge signed and stamped with Bran’s signature and logo on the grenade display case.
This is truly a unique beautiful piece by a renowned ex-military soldier now turned artist Bran Symondson.
