Clifden Nonpareil Spell. Spell for Safe Return
This moth lives up to its French name, it really is “beyond compare”. The largest, most spectacular native British moth (painted to scale), it is the holy-grail among moth enthusiasts. Thought to be extinct in the 1960s it has now recolonised Southern Britain. I love the hope this represents. A perfect and very beautiful metaphor for healing both yourself and the wider world. The angelic white feather is from a pigeon, even the most ordinary thing can be spectacular when we look with wonder. The pink of the rose quartz pebble, symbol of love is echoed in the Achillea flower. The Aspen twig in bud, food of the Clifden Nonpareil Moth caterpillar, cuts through the composition. A straight path to bring you home.
