Description: Lagoon butterfly is the manifestation of a family’s resolve, discovery and longing for the tropical paradise they once called home during the global pandemic of 2020. This pattern is created to commemorate the nature that inspired them and the historical event we all faced in humanity. Inspired by the ever changing colours of Maui Bay, Fiji, this hand painted pattern illustrates mesmerising beauty of tropical lagoons into an imaginative dance of hundreds of butterflies, flapping wings of ocean waves. Using a century old art form involving floating paint on water, lagoon butterfly showcases intricate colours created by corals beneath the lagoon which form an array of turquoise and emerald waterways. The pattern conveys a feeling of romance, beauty and hope, transporting viewers to the far flung paradise of Fiji.
