Who hasn’t seen a beautiful butterfly and have not become captivated by it? Those delicate wings, their ephemeral nature, and their mysterious growth from caterpillar, cocoon, to winged creatures. In fact, many may agree that they are a work of art in themselves.
They are so fascinating that they have spawned many pop culture concepts. The most popular of which, is the ‘butterfly effect’. This idea suggests that it’s the little things that change the world. It’s considered part of the grander chaos theory. Aside from this, butterflies have had a huge impact among artists, musicians, as well as film makers.
That’s because aside from being gorgeous, they don’t live long. Most only have 24 to 48 hours, leaving them with little opportunity to mate. This transience is looked upon as something sad, yet beautiful. Its lifespan is often used as a metaphor in movies and literature.
Today, you can find art, crafts, accessories, books, and even furniture, inspired by butterflies. There are also butterfly gardens where one can admire them among lovely, exotic flowers. If you have one in your area, you can pay them a visit so you can learn more about these beautiful winged insects. Some gardens may even sell souvenirs or seedlings so you too, can grow your own garden where butterflies can eventually thrive.
