The Hand of the Monarch

Lauren Smyth

‘Throughout the world, we view butterflies as a deep representation and symbol of hope and continued growth in our own personal lives. As we strive and evolve during difficult times to become just like the beautiful creature that flies through the air, let this piece be a small reminder – while we can't fly, we can continue to reach for change.’
