Is any mystery more impalpable than the life of butterflies? In the Madama Butterfly series, we see them strut in elaborate outfits of lace, sweeping through the air in order to alight on the most beautiful springtime flower. They would seem to be in good spirits, although it is impossible to know why. Those in Papillon, on the other hand, are enjoying a short break, side by side, wings open wide, as if in a collection. Perhaps they are sleeping, probably dreaming. Is any mystery more unfathomable than the dream of butterflies?
