Butterfly was purchased for permanent placement in the Auckland Botanic Gardens following its inclusion in their inaugural exhibition in 2007. The inspiration for this form was a dance, and the name Butterfly was chosen because of the wing-like limbs and also because of its sense of flight.
This bronze work is around 1800mm high.
A work by Llew Summers.

A fascinating piece, and its name kind of threw me until I read your note. The figure does not look graceful, but closer inspection, the sense of flight is there. Your POV is great, as it makes the figure look like it is stamping its foot, and I almost step back to avoid the crash that would follow if it did. I love to see these sculptures in Botanic gardens, it adds a great extra element. Very useful when you are acommpanied by someone with no interest in plants!
All the best
