One marvel of the butterfly is that it eats its way from pupa to caterpillar to a hanging chrysalis where, inside,  it transforms into a kind of genetic “soup”. From this matter a new creature takes shape in dark and silence and later emerges as a wondrous winged beauty, so fragile and so brief in time. This small painting is monarch-like.
