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.

About the artist:
The Improved Arts Metal Sculpture Project was started in 1986 by five brothers. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork and to make a better living. 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.
