There are many stories, myths, legends,poems,superstitions and ART about the butterfly.  Picasso painted butterflies ~ The butterfly has been symbolic of Love, Death, and Rebirth, Transformation, Hope, Freedom and Spiritual Awakening ~ The butterfly is also the Symbol of our fragile and complex ecology and is a scientific wonder ~  Maraleen Manos-Jones
