Artist Notes:

Aluta continua Não deixe os bobos deprimi-lo

Inspired by the strength and struggle of Naomi Osaka. The butterfly is symbolic and alludes to the the concept/metaphor in physics of chaos theory, referred to as the "butterfly" effect which suggests that small events can have a very large effect. The implication can also be applied to psychology, in that it can be defined as something that creates a bigger impact on the lives of people. Small thoughts can also lead to big changes. Symbolically in Spiritual and mythological terms the butterfly represents spiritual rebirth, transformation, change, hope and life. Authoress Erika Buenaflor, M.A., puts it succinctly in her book Animal Medicine,"... butterflies also symbolize rebirth, hope, and bravery. Seeing one is a sign that positive change is transpiring, and brave forces are watching over you and ensuring graceful transitions".
