The Story

The Sphinx Moth, or Hawk Moth, resembles a hummingbird in nature but is nocturnal, therefore she is often overlooked and is able to go about her tasks unhampered by the rest of the diurnal world. It is this mimicry that inspired me to adorn this most recent Vaquera with these moths. Emblazoned upon her shoulders, this delicate insignia reminds us that there are inspiring powers at play in the midnight hours.
