Durer Playmobil and the Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly

When a friend returned from a trip to Spain bearing a gift for my young son, bemusement and a smidgen of jealousy fell upon me. Little did I know that Playmobil produced none other than Albrecht Dürer, the famous Nuremberg painter.

Cruel parent that I am, I’ve temporarily taken him into protective custody and he’s sitting on my desk until my son learns how not to dismantle and lose things. I thought I would take a photograph to share, when a hibernating small tortoiseshell butterfly, from up in the timber roofing, decided that winter would be the opportune moment to spring to life. He must have been attracted to Dürer too, as after circling the studio once, he crash landed at the artist’s feet and remained there for some considerable time.
