Carved Bone Pendant, Butterfly 5
In Traditional Thai and Chinese Folklore, Butterflies are believed to be vessels for departing souls, and that they carry souls away to higher and happier planes.
They are seen by many as an expression of transcendance of both earthly pleasure and distress, bringing comfort to the loved ones of those formerly suffering.
Many people find comfort when mourning death to equate their lost loved one, sometimes even death itself, with a Butterfly, which is almost universally considered beautiful, graceful and a symbol of Freedom.
The Butterfly is believed to act as a vessel for the spirit in-between a death in one life and the reincarnation into the next on the karmic wheel.
