In this series, I wanted to combine the beautiful colors of moths and butterflies with the sparkle of the stars. These animals have a deep meaning to me, they represent the change after a deep coma phase. I have always considered their being able to completely change their body as a kind of resurrection, seeing in them the ability to reach a new level of existence. After a long life as a caterpillar, they give up a body that has now done its job, only to be able to soar in the sky and shine like bright stars.
