“The butterfly is born from the chrysalis, a word that comes from “crisis”. The Caterpillar, what a challenge, touches the ground with its paws and body. But, after directly experiencing the horizontal planes and matter, turns into a chrysalis, where he dies to become a butterfly. He has transmuted his legs for wings, earth by air, the wood of the horizontal cross by the vertical, the extensive by the intense, the experience of matter through a vision from above, higher and broader.
