Description

 

The Saturnia Pyri, or Giant Peacock Moth, which is known as the transformation harbinger in folklore, is depicted as the messenger of sorrow with graphite pencils.

 

Resting heavily on its back is a Victorian bezel frame with one single eye. The eye is melancholic with a single tear rolling down.
