The image symbolically conveys to us the feelings of happiness and
beauty of the world arousing in everyone bound on a distant voyage. In
Japan, the image of the butterfly has inspired the artists for
hundreds of years. It is always associated with the best moments in
life. Here, traditional celebrations and marches begin with “the dance
of the butterfly.” Butterflies also accompany wedding ceremonies in
Japan. But not all know that butterflies are the amazing and
courageous travelers. In favorable winds Monarch butterflies from
North America can cross the Atlantic to reach England, resting as
needed on the decks of ships.
