Have you ever seen a luna moth? They are quite rare to see because they only live for 24 hours and are only out at night. Janet and I saw one at the train station early one morning when we were leaving for vacation several years ago. We were both thrilled and thought it was a good omen for our vacation and it was. We had a great time in Key West and even visited a butterfly house where I carried a butterfly on my shoulder for most of the visit. I was told this is a lucky thing. I guess people associate lots of luck with moths and butterflies.
I think they are beautiful and mysterious, rare and fascinating. So I've commemorated them on this mug.
Luna Moth Mug
This is one of the pieces that I did with some embellishment and carving for relief. I wrote about them here when I first made them. You can read more about this mug in my Etsy Store.
