Raleigh, North Carolina based artist Yumi Okita creates enormous textile sculptures of insects, some measuring nearly a foot wide. Using applique and embroidery techniques, Okita embellishes pieces of fabric to form the wings, bodies and faces of flying anthropods like moths and butterflies. Materials used include fabric, fake fur, fabric paint, embroidery thread, wire, and feathers.
