Butterfly Maiden & the Dancing Fern (Sold)
Butterfly Maiden is an American Indian Goddess. According to a Papago legend, the Creator made butterflies to gladden his heart when he perceived the impermanence of life. He took a spot of sunlight, some blue from the sky, the whiteness of cornmeal, the blackness of a beautiful girl's hair, the green of pine needles, and the red, purple, and orange of flowers. He put them in a bag which he gave to the children. When the children opened the bag, thousands of multi-colored butterflies danced about them, lighting upon their skin.
