I chose the butterfly to feature as a colourful piece. (I do love lizards, however a chameleon would have taken a lot longer…and does not complement the story.)
The butterfly wings were originally going to be coloured with recycled beads however the natural shell theme quickly took over.
A butterfly does not live for very long, yet manages to be such a beautiful rare creature that always brings joy to those that see them.
A trip to the Butterfly House, Coffs Harbour will open your eyes to the uniqueness of the butterfly.
I added the feathers to create a more powerful effect. This also adds to the story, as every one is a rare creature that can not be compared to anyone else. We are built to develop and grow, finding our own rhythm to live our best life.
