This is a one of a kind piece of wearable art made for the Five and Diamond Seventh Annual Headgear Art Show and shown on August 2, 2019.

There is a lot of symbolism around white butterflies. If the first butterfly you see in the year is white you will have good luck all year. White butterflies are symbols of spiritual change. In the Philippines, seeing a white butterfly means that there is a message coming. In Ireland, they were thought to carry the souls of dead children. To the Blackfoot, they carried dreams. In Chinese symbology, a white butterfly symbolizes the soul of a departed love one. A White butterfly also means angels are watching over you and that you are being protected.

MATERIALS USED
Assemblage of mixed vintage and precious remnants including, silk flowers, silk netting, vintage faux pearls, freshwater pearls, dyed howlite, rutilated quartz, leather, hand painted coconut face covering (Mexico), Synthetic sinew, brass wire, vintage butterfly, hallow brass Mellon beads, vintage African trade phonograph beads, lucite rings and tassels.

WEARING INSTRUCTIONS
