About this oil painting:


Did you ever suffer from butterflies in your stomach? When swimming, do you ever do the butterfly stroke, or are you a bit of a fan of the opera Madame Butterfly?

The butterfly has always been an inspiration for art, fashion and culture, language and sport. The metamorphosis of the butterfly, from the insatiable caterpillar to the beautiful and delicate butterfly have inspired mankind for hundreds of years. Small wonder then, that for thousands of years, the butterfly has also played an important roll in the mythology of several cultures.

In many cultures and religions the metamorphosis is a symbol of immortality, resurrection and reincarnation. The butterfly as a symbol for the immortal soul is often represented in Greek and Roman mythology and has also been immortalized in ancient Egyptian grave murals. The butterfly can also be seen on Christian tomb stones, representing the resurrection. In Asia however, the butterfly is often associated with bad luck and death, but also represents a new start.

Today, butterflies are found in art and literature, often as symbols of freedom, transformation and life. Our artist painted this beautiful butterfly in this work as a symbol of hope.

Note: All the paintings come rolled in a tube by default!
Stretching the painting on a wooden bar on the back (gallery wrap) and having it ready to hang is available by adding 45 NZ Dollars for the stretching service and another 20 NZ Dollars for extra shipment costs.
