The Ugears Butterfly is as unique as it is beautiful. The Butterfly is not a static stand model, but an animated kinetic sculpture. Each detail is designed to make sure it fits its own place and plays its own part in the workings of this outstanding mechanism. Equipped with a rubber band motor the mechanical automaton moves imitating the flutter of a butterfly with no external power source or batteries.

The delicate wings of the Butterfly are made of craft paper. The lower wings change their tilt angle when the model is working to ensure that the movements of the automaton resemble those of a real butterfly. Two front pairs of its legs move while the wings flutter. The back pair of legs are used as launch/stop levers of the rubber band motor. Your Butterfly comes with two sets of wings: a coloured one and a less bright beige one that you can paint as you like. The Butterfly sits on a flower-shaped platform. The elastic support slightly bounces the model, making its movements more realistic so that the Butterfly dances and flutters in the air approaching the flower.
