The Time of Butterflies

The ancient Greeks considered the butterfly to be a symbol of the human soul, calling her Psyche and frequently pairing her off with Amor. “In Persian poetry the butterfly denotes a moment that is particularly beautiful, yet also fleeting, always carrying within it the idea of sacrifice when, magically drawn to the light, it flies to its doom,” as Forouhar explains. Her mother had been a butterfly from birth, for her name was Parvaneh, which means butterfly. Each butterfly the artist creats gives rise to a cosmic explosion of colors and forms, and at the same time conjures up the spirit of her mother. Nadja Henle
