The butterfly is a creature that is light, airy and floaty. Easily, the butterfly could go with the wind, being picked up by the breeze and toted all around to where the wind wants to take it. Still, the butterfly endures the currents in the air and presses on in spite of the pressure. The Butterfly-1 painting uses the symbolism of the butterfly, one that denotes transformation, life and hope, by likening it to human nature. In many religions, the butterfly is the symbol of the soul, leading the viewer to believe that with inner strength comes the power to endure the winds of change.
