“Goudraffeltje”, Anne Ten Donkelaar
Dutch artist Anne Ten Donkelaar collects broken butterflies and repairs them with fine care and skill. The broken wings above are fixed with gold leaf to give them new, luminous edges.

Look closely. Not a fuzzy photo, but two embroidered wings on top.
“Landkaart”, Anne Ten Donkelaar
My personal favorite, the moth whose wings are completed with pieces of maps. Some of the maps used are the ones of the country where the moth originated.
