The Butterfly is a symbol of transformation across many cultures around the world. I love using the butterfly as a metaphor, to explore the transcendent quality I believe is present in us all. Like the butterfly lava that has to die in order to morph and resurrect into a new state to become the butterfly. It reminds me to have faith in the process of change.
This Zebra Butterfly is made in contrasting black and white, and embellished with gold mandalas.
A copper frame starts the shape.
Raw silk is printed with hand drawn sketches and formed over sculpted clay.
The finishing touches are added in the form of painted details & embellishments.
It is a layered refined & intricate process developed by Martin and is unique to these sculptures.
