Children's Charity Auction, Wings in the City,
will benefit St. Louis' BJC Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care program.
The butterflies were unveiled in October 2010 and will emerge again in May 2011 to be auctioned off.
There are over 50 of these giant butterflies that you can see here.
Here's a photo just so you can get an idea of the size of these beauties.
Artists used bits and pieces of maps, jewelry, gems, game pieces, beads, pennies, photos, hockey pucks, mirrors, buttons, legos, and mosaic tiles. A creative bunch. Here's a close up of Diane Katzman's piece.
And there is a butterfly from Mary Englebreit Studios
(she is the honorary artist for the event) that has already been sold for the children's charity benefit.

Makes me want to get artsy with a butterfly. Or maybe just bid on one. Maybe you want to as well.
What would you put on your butterfly?
