The butterfly is a powerful symbol of transformation because of its amazing process of metamorphosis. The butterfly reminds us that change is inevitable and to keep our faith as we undergo transitions in our lives. In many cultures the butterfly is associated with the soul, joy, beauty and color. Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from businesses in the industrial area of Harare are turned into these delightful sculptures by these artists using snips, pliers, and hammers.
