SCREAM OF THE BUTTERFLY
Butterflies are often associated with a whimsical beauty but one rarely considers the brutal process the creature goes through to become that way. Caterpillars retreat into their cocoons and within the darkness begin to digest themselves, a painful act which we do not see. After the metamorphosis, we observe the light and delicate butterfly float off out of the abandoned carcass of its past self.
