Butterfly birth

The Birth of a Butterfly is a personal project about living with depression. It was created intuitively, being part of a personal healing practice.
The main idea of the work was to depict mental wounds and then heal them. At the beginning, the human figure is more like a caterpillar, but with a big hole in the back.
This wound turns out to be the embryos of future wings, and the caterpillar transforms into a butterfly.
