Le Papillon

The murals at 455 Hyde Street, collectively known as ​Le Papillon​, tell the story of the family tree of San Francisco’s butterflies. On the 12-story north and east walls, ​One Monarch,​ depicts a single monarch flying toward the state flower, the California poppy. On the south wall, ​Butterflies and Poppies ​showcases representatives from the five families of butterflies found in San Francisco. On the entryway and the garage, a pattern of poppies is overlaid with all 34 species of San Francisco’s butterflies.
