Artist's Description

Friends are special…especially the trippy kind…

Meet Astyanax Arroz de Festa, Absinth Verte and Azurite Verditer;

Astyanax – named after one of the several nymphalid butterflies, Basilarchia astyanax, recognisable by its blackish wings spotted with red.
Arroz de festa comes from the portuguese noun meaning ‘social butterfly’.
Our Astyanax here (on the right) is a real people person, loves company (rarely seen without Absinth by her side) and never goes anywhere without her red spotted black boots!

Absinth Verte – named after the drink Absinthe, a distilled, highly alcoholic anise-flavored spirit derived from herbs, including the flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium.
Absinthe is typically of a natural green color but is also produced in both clear and artificially colored styles. It is often called “the Green Fairy.”
Verte is derived from the type of absinthe most commonly consumed in the 19th century and is what is generally thought of as absinthe.
It is also french for “green”
Our Absinthe here (on the left) also goes by the name “green fairy” and often artificially colours her hair, though she tends to stick with green… She is also highly spirited and enjoys many old world treasures…

Azurite Verditer (pictured middle) – named firstly after the soft, deep blue copper mineral azurite produced by weathering of copper ore deposits.
The blue of azurite is exceptionally deep and clear, and for that reason the mineral has tended to be associated since antiquity with the deep blue color of low-humidity desert and winter skies.
The name Verditer comes from the common name of the ore azurite, used as a blue pigment for centuries, it was formerly known as Azurro Della Magna (from Italian). But is also known by the names Blue Bice and Blue Verditer
Verdita symbolises Azurites creativity, which is abundant. (tho sometimes misused)
