Elemental Butterflies

Butterflies are curious creatures. Do they have any sense of their previous existence as munching, crunching, gobbling caterpillars I wonder?

Here are some new painted Butterfly paper cuttings approx A3 in size.

These new butterfly paper cuttings incorporate the elements of Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Aether.

Earth is where they come from and ultimately where they return to when they die. Fire is the energy that helps them metamorphose from caterpillar to butterfly. Air is where they feel most at home as they ride the breezes and currents from flower to flower. Water is what sustains and feeds them in the form of nectar. Aether is the life giving energy that surrounds everything.

Each of these Elemental Paper Cut Butterflies represents a different element.

There are more to come!

Wow, such eye candy; these butterflies are so intricate and cerebral... a few brain shaped forms hover and tail along with the insect. Do the remember their former states of being? they do adapt asynchronously to the elements you've ascribed to each one. Does a child remember being a toddler, in in utero? Perhaps all animate beings have a sensory memory time, seasons & elements. Wow again, gorgeous. B
