Significance of Purple
The color purple is a balance of red and blue primary colors. In color theory, the definition of ‘purple’ is any non-spectral color that is between violet and red, however, in the world of art, it is the color on the color wheel that is between magenta and violet.
It was originally discovered on the shores of Tyre in ancient Phoenicia, presently known as Lebanon, where the name ‘purple’ was founded, whereby the color of dye was extracted from mollusc shells. Throughout history purple has been associated with royalty with royals, emperors and kings wore purple imperial robes with gold thread trimmings. Being rare and expensive, the color of purple became the symbol of wealth, imperialism and aristocracy, which is primarily due to the difficulty and costliness involved in producing purple dye and only the wealthy could afford it.
In modern times purple continues to have a royal connotation and represents sophistication. It is an uplifting color that evokes passion, and also has a calming influence.
Beauty of Butterflies
The butterfly is from the order of Lepidoptera and is especially appreciated from its metamorphosis from the egg, to a caterpillar (larvae), to the chrysalis or cocoon (pupa) and emerges into a flying insect with beautifully colored wings. It is the greatest change in the animal kingdom and from this magnificent process of metamorphosis; the butterfly is often a symbol for transformation, change and rebirth into new life.
Throughout history, the butterfly has also been a symbol of change, joy, color and prosperity. In Chinese culture, if two butterflies are flying together, they are a symbol of love. In Ancient Greek, the word butterfly means ‘soul’ and ‘mind’. The large and often brightly colored wings of butterflies’ fluttering wings can serve as a reminder to not take things too seriously and to live life with a sense of lightness and joy. And some people believe that if a butterfly lands on you, it means good luck. Regardless of the symbolism, the butterfly remains a truly beautiful and inspirational insect in nature.
