From the artist:
For the last 20 years I have been meditating on a daily basis and the majority of the time outside in nature. Animals would always cross my path whilst in meditation as I tend to keep my eyes open. I feel a shamanic connection to animals as I experience them as spirit guides or messengers. This butterfly from South America was seen flying over the coffin of a friend's son that died of cancer aged 24, it was the moment his spirit left his body and transformed into new life, a full cycle from life to death to rebirth.
