Baron Neal Uses Butterfly Wings to Create Art
If you are a fan of arts and crafts or looking for a great souvenir, you are in for a treat. This Belizean’s unique and creative art is sure to capture your attention. His Artwork carries impressive details, colors and most importantly adds that special memory to your Belizean vacation.
Baron Neal was featured this year at the first ever Art in the Park in San Pedro Town, amongst other craftsmen. This is where I met Mr. Neal and got intrigued by his unique butterfly artwork.
Making art from butterflies which die of natural causes is not something that would pop up firstly when thinking of Belize. Baron Neal does not let these beautiful creatures go to waste and proves that creative talent can be used in a very interesting and sustainable way.
Next to the Morpho butterfly, which Baron collects in the Chaa Creek Butterfly Farm, he also collects different colorful butterflies from Trek Stop and Green Hills in the Cayo District. Sometimes he will use feathers or leaves to improve his artwork. The glass is cut at a local shop and a friend prepares the wooden frame which holds his creations.
Baron Neal has being doing and perfecting this unique type of art work for six years now. If any customers have a specific request for their butterfly art, he is confident that he can create it.
Neal was kind enough to show me his skills in creating his impressive butterfly artwork (trust me it is not easy). If you are ever in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize make sure to stop by Belizean Melody Art Gallery and get the chance to buy yourself a unique souvenir; they are also nicely packaged which makes it easy to pack.
