Butterflies are often considered beautiful embodiment of the various stages of life. From the humble beginnings of caterpillar to their impressive transformation into a butterfly, these creatures validate that pain, adversity or simple change can make life even more beautiful than before.
Makes me think of what the world is going through right now because of the COVID 19.
Many cultures equate the butterfly with the endurance and hope of the human soul.
This series of blank greeting cards were created from a water damaged piece of art that was headed to the hill of no return when I decided to hold on to it so as to fix it up one day.
That day has finally come because of the COVID 19 Pandemic of 2020. With free time on my hands, I spent many an hour rejuvenating the artwork. The small photo of the original work on the back of the card shows you the insane struggle that had to go into this artwork to give you the BUTTERFLY ESCAPES.
The butterfly symbolizes that it is time to “take time” to form bonds with one another, contemplate your purpose and motives, face the dangers and risks in life and work on one or more specific goals that you have, that you want to fulfil. The butterfly is natures symbol of the faith as we go through various changes of our lives. The ever-changing dimensions of the butterfly, change, transformation, and attaining enlightenment are integral parts of the representation of the butterfly. There is an uncompromising belief that the natural transformation process is connected to the inner spirit or soul, as well as being allied to faith, by many ancient cultures. For example, consider the Burmese mythology, which not only believes that the butterfly symbolizes the soul, they gave it its own identity, calling it “Win-laik-pya” meaning "soul-butterfly.” They believe that while a person is sleeping, their soul-butterfly escapes, flying through the cosmos, crossing paths with other soul-butterflies, it lives a life of its own, as the “oversoul”. As the owner awakens, the butterfly must immediately return. It is feared that if you wake someone up suddenly, the soul-butterfly might fail to return in time to its owner.
When the caterpillar gets ready to compose a beautiful cocoon around itself, it is thought that there is a deep mystery and power which is hidden spiritually, as it is closes the door to life to become part of a deep sleep. During this time, the most awesome, inexplicable metamorphosis occurs as the caterpillar becomes the butterfly. It is the changing process of the butterfly and how it transforms that gives meaning for us to see this fascination to our lives. It is meant to remind us that working against the forces of nature is completely futile and foolish, what is going to happen will happen and there is nothing we can do to stop it. All we can do is use it to make the changes we need to be the best or worst of ourselves. That is our choice, but we have that God given choice for us to transform or die in the cocoon... If we choose what is good, right, and proper, we will be the butterfly, where nothing is holding us back and not the moth (but that’s another story).
Psyche, meaning “soul” in the Greek language, has been depicted in many styles of art in the form of a butterfly in Greek mythology. Psyche was the goddess of the soul and the wife of Eros the god of love. Just like a woman, Psyche and Eros were in a hopeless passionate love eternally as per the Greek mythology describes.
Engraved on ancient Christian graves, butterflies are found, because in some Christian art, Jesus Christ is seen holding a butterfly in his hands. Often the transformation of the caterpillar to the butterfly alone is related to the transformation of the human form, like Jesus. From an egg to a baby, from unknown to known, from loved to be hated, from life to death, from death to resurrection. Similarly, like the butterfly. This makes the comparison between the butterfly and our souls more befitting.
There is so much more to tell of the butterfly… and as I create more series of the butterfly, I will tell you more of what I find out… keep enjoying my pictures and keep enjoying my stories… the money you spend to buy these cards will be helpful in getting my crisis website up and running again and stay running. Thank you for your support.
