MOTHS AND METAMORPHOSIS

Luna Moth, biological print. ca. 1815.

Moths and butterflies have roots in ancient mythology and tradition. The Greeks originally depicted the soul or spirit as a stick figure with wings. The butterfly/moth as a symbol of spirit and its potential for transformation originated from that source. The Greek myth of Psyche and Eros (Cupid) is a mythological metaphor for the feminine journey toward consciousness. Psyche is the Greek word for both soul and butterfly.
