Tammy Deysee: Abalone Shell, Butterfly

Tammy Deysee: Abalone Shell, Butterfly


The combination of the iridescent abalone shell, known for its breathtaking play of colors, and the bold contrast created by the dot inlay, makes this butterfly an absolute showstopper. Its vibrant hues and shimmering qualities evoke a sense of life and movement, commanding attention and admiration from all who lay eyes on it. This stunning creation serves as a testament to both the fragility and resilience embodied by butterflies while exemplifying the transformative power of artistic expression. 

In its short life butterfly (Bula'kya) transforms from a tiny egg to a crawling caterpillar, then becomes an outwardly still cocoon until a winged creature emerges. Butterfly medicine shows us the significance of each stage of transformation.

Butterfly dances on flowers, tastes nectar and flowers through its feet, sees the hidden spectrum of ultraviolet, and gracefully flies on invisible atmospheric currents, displaying balance and poise. Although butterfly looks delicate some varieties tenaciously migrate incredible distances of up to 3,000 miles.
Butterfly's element is the air, symbolic of mental realms. Our minds can go in any direction and our thoughts can take any form. Butterfly navigates this positive transformation with ease and brings powerful beauty to the world.
