They cling to the wall en masse and are meant to demonstrate the mystery behind naming and classifying living creatures

We’ve been privvy to some pretty amazing art on Inhabitat, including this toothpick rendition of San Francisco. What many of these pieces have in common is the extraordinary patience associated with their development. Watanabe cut out hundreds of butterflies of varying sizes to create a colorful, vibrant, and altogether curious effect. We think his installation creates far more butterfly appeal than some stinking field guide!
