Since early times, the butterfly has symbolized renewed life. The caterpillar signifies life here on earth;
the cocoon, death; and the butterfly, the emergence of the dead into a new, beautiful and freer existence.
Frequently, the butterfly is seen with the word “Nika”, which means victory. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross movingly
tells of seeing butterflies drawn all over the walls of the children’s dormitories in the World War II
concentration camps. Since Elisabeth believes in the innate intuitiveness of children, she concludes that
these children knew their fate and were leaving us a message.
