This delicate Blue Morpho wing has been set in Sterling Silver, and inlaid into the center of one of our finest Pinecones. Each wing comes from a sustainable Peruvian butterfly farm -- helping to protect local rainforests from widespread cutting and burning by providing alternative livelihood for local indigenous peoples. The Butterfly is symbolic of personal transformation and evolution -- transitioning from our current state towards our future dreams and highest purpose, just as the caterpillar metamorphosizes into a beautiful butterfly.
This piece bears a Sterling Silver Sri Yantra (literally meaning "holy instrument") Mandala, symbolizing the junction between the physical universe and its unmanifest source according to Hindu Mysticism. Four triangles face upwards to represent the Divine Masculine (Shiva), and five triangles face downwards to represent the Divine Feminine (Shakti). The Sri Yantra is often referred to as the Chakra Raja – King of all Chakras – making it a supreme instrument in the path of spiritual advancement.
