Butterflies have long been beloved, spiritually adored creatures of nature.
The mere transformation from caterpillar (read: larvae) to a beautiful motley of colors and ethereal wings (read: butterfly) is the stuff of symbolic aphorisms for CHANGE, GROWTH, LIFE and DEATH in religious texts, books and poems the world over.
It is the Seed from which every Folk Tale has plucked from; from the Ugly Duckling to Pygmalian…the Butterfly is the original MAKEOVER story!
Also to be noted the ‘the Butterfly’ is one of the most common symbols for ADC ‘After Death Communication’. Many people have reported receiving a sign which affirmed that their deceased family member or friend had survived physical death and continues to live in another dimension of existence. That sign has often times been a butterfly, perched on a window sill at the exact moment when someone is grieving over the departed or at a grave site when asked for a ‘sign’.
Regardless of your belief system, one can definitely understand why the legacy of the lovely butterfly continues to live on strongly in pop culture & fashion.
In fact, Spring 2013 is proving to be the SEASON of the Butterfly with a cornucopia of butterfly Accessories like these hot Gucci shades…
