Ornithopera Priamus, or Priam's Birdwing, is named in honor of Priam, the last king of Troy. It inhabits Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Solomon Islands.
The species is very variable, it has of about a hundred subspecies. While the males of the subspecies are multicoloured and extremely different (blue, green, golden, sea-green), the females are more modest in colouring and sometimes look like other Ornithoptera females. But in wingspan the females are much larger than males, they are 20 cm.
This beaded butterfly is woven of 11 colours.

The pattern includes a photo of the finished butterfly, a palette of needed toho beads and 7 graphs, from picking the first beads up to the finished piece with showing the way of the thread in each graph. The colours in each bead are numbered for easier work. Such butterfly can be used as a brooch, a hair slide, a central part of a necklace or simply as a nice souvenir.
