“There is nothing about a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly” – Buckminster Fuller
Metamorphosis is one of nature’s most dramatic transformations. A destructive being that only rests and consumes, the caterpillar… transforms into a being that poses and creates so much beauty, as it flies from flower to flower…The butterfly.
“we can assume a caterpillar has no premonition of the future, so when it enters that cocoon, it must believe it has come to its end.”- Alan Watts
The butterfly for me symbolises the transformation of life, re-birth, and the interconnected nature of everything in existence.
