Butterflies, released from the dress as cut outs, apply their transformative magic to the task of lifting the woman up and carrying her away in loveliness, possibility, and lightness of spirit. At the same time, the butterfly shaped openings allow us to see her outer and inner beauty at once. Even from the front, the pure white dress, a symbol of tranquil elegance, offers a glimpse into the nature of her deepest self. Like glowing bronze, it is both softly nurturing and undeniably strong.
