Migration Is Beautiful Oversize Lasercut Piece 2017 EV 1/2
This piece is a remix of my classic "Migration is Beautiful." The monarch butterfly represents the natural act that is migration. Human beings have been migrating since the beginning of time. We are a part of nature, and it's in our human nature to move, just as all other species move. Borders were created by governments - but they are meant to keep people in or out, they are not a natural part of our environment. This art work imagines a world without walls and borders.
This butterfly symbolizes the rights of all living beings to move freely. Like the monarch butterfly, human beings cross borders in search of safer habitats. Like the monarch butterfly, human beings cross borders in order to survive. Each wing in this butterfly shows a human profile.
