Before and After

Whimsical PersuasionThis is a Sapho Longwing butterfly. It is not exactly known for sure how this butterfly was named but it is believed it is named after the Greek poet Sappho, who authored lyrical poetry about love. Sadly most of her poems are lost but a few were preserved in fragmented form.


The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is "hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection, Transition, Celebration, Lightness, Time and Soul.
