The symbolism of the butterfly

The butterfly : a symbol all around the world

The desire to capture the beauty of butterflies date back over 3500 years, when the Egyptians began to incorporate them into their art. Already then, these beautiful creatures were used as inspiration in many forms of artistic expression, whether in decoration, for making jewelry, incense burners and a lot of other items. The Aztecs and Mayans also used butterflies in their art to brighten their surroundings.

No wonder then that the butterfly has always been such a powerful symbol in various cultures all around of the world. For example, Denis Diderot stated in his Encyclopedia that the butterfly is a symbol of the soul, a belief shared by the Greek and Roman civilizations. Today, the people in Japan still see the butterflies as representing the souls of the living and the dead, in addition to seeing in it a symbol of happiness and longevity.

Today, the butterfly often symbolizes a renewal, a new era, because of its transformation from a caterpillar to its adult phase, through the chrysalis. More and more couples are choosing to incorporate a flight of butterflies in their wedding ceremony for that reason. For many, butterflies are also a symbol of beauty and elegance, as well as representing the female energy.

 

The Butterfly Effect phenomenon

Many know the butterfly effect as a metaphor rooted in modern culture, but in fact this concept first surfaced in weather science at a conference given by the meteorologist Edward Lorenz in 1972. The scientist had asked the audience “Does the Flap of a Butterfly’s Wings in Brazil Set off a Tornado in Texas?

Today, the butterfly effect characterizes how simple actions or moments seemingly innocuous can have a great impact in the future, either on our own lives or those of others. After all, who has not made a new aquaintance or made a simple decision that seemed so natural, only to discover its true important meaning in the future?

It is in this spirit that the collection The Butterfly Effect was inspired: to symbolize the beauty, elegance and energy of strong women around the world, of course. But also to capture these precious moments, simple but with an impact, that shape our path. Thus, you can remember those instants on special occasions with your accessory signed The Butterfly Effect!
