The pictorial work “A BUTTERFLY ON THE MOON” is the 2nd in the series called “The Infinite Stories”. In the darkness of cosmic space, where divine light is present, the planet earth appears with its aqua blue, set on fire by its dark humanity. The moon, melancholy, with its face created by ancient magic, looks at its beloved earth in a phase of devastation, while a multicolored butterfly, the last of its kind, can appear on its lips. And in its essence “endless soul” the Butterfly wants to rise again from its prompt death, asking the moon to welcome it as its new companion. The Butterfly remains motionless, resting on a red petal of a flower, to cloak the lips of the moon, devoid of any word, offering him as a gift that petal which is the bed of his pain and grave of his death. The Butterfly and the melancholy Moon, inert to the cycle of destruction, join a pain that flows into an excruciating love, waiting for a new humanity.
