A butterfly is mainly a day flying insect. The butterfly’s life cycle consists of four parts; Egg, Larva, Pupa and Adult. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings and conspicuous, fluttering flight. The earliest known butterfly fossils date to the mid Eocene epoch, between 40-50 million years ago. Some butterflies have evolved symbiotic and parasitic relationships with social insects such as ants. Some of these species are pests because in their larval stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; however some species are agents of pollination of some plants, and caterpillars of a few butterflies eat harmful insects.
Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.
Interrogating a butterfly is an art installation with a sculptural element in it that shows interesting facts about this silent delicate insect: The Butterfly, based on scientific theory and exploration.
