The Offspring and the ButterflyOil Painting by Tiago Azevedo 16 x 12 inches


The love of everything that is joyous, brilliant, and consoling in life explains why Two Sisters is such a popular painting. Here is depicted the radiance of two lovely young children on a warm and beautiful day. The older girl, with a more tamed hairdo alluding to her personality, is posed in the right of the evocative landscape where a butterfly passes by.


She gazes absently beyond her younger companion, who seems, in a charming visual conceit, to have a free spirit and vivid imagination chasing after the butterfly. Technically, like a stage set, this seems a realm of pure vision and fantasy, holding the bright, pure pigments of the painting. Although the girls were not actually sisters, for this is loosely inspired in the fairy tale of mother hole, their bond and proximity are clear in the composition.


Aristotle gave the butterfly the name psyche, the Greek word for soul. Many cultures relate butterflies to the human soul. In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is psyche which means soul, and was also the name of Eros' human lover.
