BUTTERFLIES NOW SAFELY LANDED

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This post is the ARCHIVE for all butterflies received for The Butterfly Effect project from 2010-2012 - as at August 6th, 2012.

Entirely beyond my biggest hopes for this project, the final total of butterflies received was 604.

If you are new to my blog or to this project, here is a link to the original post and call for butterflies along with a link to The Holocaust Museum Houston, the final resting place for these butterflies as we remember the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust.  You can view all of the butterflies received here by double clicking on the butterfly to your right on the sidebar.  Please note, over the next few weeks numbers and images may change as I complete the final checks and balances.

AND, just in case you may be interested in creating your own butterfly, it is not too late.  The deadline for sending your butterfly to the museum is JUNE 30th, 2013....so please considerate it.
The goal to collect 1.5 million butterflies is still a ways away as the most recent information posted on the museum website is an estimated 1,350,000 butterflies have been collected.

A big thank you again for these lovely tributes to the children of the Holocaust!

Yellow:
- inspiration was a poem by Pavel Friedman. Though this is a yellow butterfly, it is not free as it is literally tied down to the background by its buttons. The body is meant to look as if it were wrapped in funery rags. Too many of the children of the Holocaust did not even have that.


Sherry Harmes
Eagle River, Arkansas, USA




Red:
- inspired by the death's head moth. Background paper for this butterfly is from the Wikipedia definition of Holocaust as well as words about crematoria and Joseph Mengele experiments and changed the font to Vivaldi and decreased it to 8 pts. The butterfly is struggling to leave the page as it is too painful for even death to contemplate. The body of this one too is wrapped in funery rags. The red's are for all of the blood shed.

Oragami:
made with 2nd page of the above described "Holocaust" paper.

Starting with Sharmon Davidson's butterfly, and followed by 15 others, Sharmon inspired the Art Club at Camp Ernst Middle School in Burlington, Kentucky! Thanks to everyone there!

Marguerite's butterfly has particular personal and heartfelt significance to it that I thought I would share today.  Her grandfather researched the family's ancestors to find they had distance German Jewish family members in the concentration camps.   Marguerite has found inspiration in the Holocaust Museum Houston project and is planning to launch a year long project around it.  She will begin on her birthday, December 16th and make one butterfly everyday for a year.  She plans to hang each one from the ceiling as the year progresses.  Stay tuned for a link to her blog that will feature this ambitious project!
