Painting: butterflies and Ginkgo leaves

Wonderful paintings of Ginkgo leaves showing the resemblance in shape to butterflies.

Photo taken on Nov. 10, 2011 shows the handmade butterflies created by 81-year-old Gu Houxin with leaves of Ginkgo trees in Suzhou, east China's Jiangsu Province. Gu has so far made over 700 such butterflies by painting coloured patterns on Ginkgo leaves.

How can I purchase some of the butterflies?
