This piece was to epitomize a style of carving that was so popular, but unlike the carvings, I didn't make her a Katsinam. We are not suppose to cast our carvings of Hopi Katsinam. Also, since there are so many types of Butterfly Maidens, I chose to do an artistic rendition. 

Some of her features in the design includes no body, but the face, shoulders, hand, knee and foot gives you the impression of a body within the piece. Then the swooping up motion on the bottom of the cape is to represent the evaporative process, or the becoming of a cloud being, as all Katsinam represent. Finally, I leave the cape open on one side to represent a releasing of the heart from within.

Work hard, keep the ceremonies, live peaceably, and unite your hearts.~ Hopi Proverb
