Celtic Border with Butterfly
a 4.75" x 7" painting
for sale in my Artfire on-line shop HERE
This is an off-shoot of butterfly boxes I have been painting. It is done on pine with artist grade acrylic paints and is a small painting.
The butterfly symbolizes transformation, profound changes of the soul (evolution), pure spirit, joy, uplifting grace
The knot symbolizes beginnings and endings (and ever-more beginnings and endings) in a timeless way. In ancient times, Celtic knots were given to ward off sickness or setbacks (and in the end, for longevity).
In this painting, the transformation and joyous nature of the butterfly is synchronized with infinity. The transformation of the butterfly is also protected from sickness and setbacks.
I think I may have painted this about my own life at this time! I pass this spiritually potent meaning onto the next owner.
