Giant Life-Like Moths And Butterflies Made Of Embroidered Fabric

Published by:

Yumi Okita, a talented North Carolina-based artist, creates beautiful embroidered art depicting large moths, the less popular but no less beautiful cousin of the ubiquitous butterfly.

Okita’s creations, replete with fur, eyes, legs, antennae, and finely-embroidered wing patterns, strike a fine balance between artistry and realism. There’s a wonderful tension between the beauty of her work and the unsettling creepy-crawly furriness of a giant bug – her creations can reach up to almost a foot in width.

To check out more of Okita’s moths and other insect creations (like a cuddly cicada), check out her Etsy!

The Grave in the Middle of a Rural Indiana Road

Published by:

The Grave in the Middle of a Rural Indiana Road

On a rural stretch of County Road 400 in Amity, Indiana, the road splits around a small mound of earth located in the center of the roadway. That mound is the grave of Nancy Kerlin Barnett (1793-1831) and it is in the middle of the road for a most unusual reason. As the 1912 historical marker at the site explains, when the county planned to run a road through the cemetery in which Barnett was laid to rest, her grandson Daniel Doty guarded the plot with a gun until the county relented and built the road around the grave.
