If we are patient, great changes can occur.


The essential message that my creation wants to transmit is that good things come to those who wait and we can always have pleasant surprises when we don't lose our patience.

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts. Also, I always found their metamorphosis quite an interesting phenomenon that shows us that something beautiful can emerge from something apparantly not so nice.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

General culture

What story does your design tell?

My design captures the final stages of the metamorphosis, in which the larva stays in its cocon and then when a new butterfly is ready to fly.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

I wanted a style a bit different for this idea and I chose to create an illustration that looks more like a painting.

Hi! I am Sabina from Roumania. I am actually a medical student, but in my spare time I like to learn all sort of other things. I took this contest as a challange to see if I put my ideas into an illustration.
