This interesting bronze sculpture of a butterfly in an open hand was done by New England contemporary artist Barbara Faucher. Faucher is a self-taught artist with a love of nature and a passion for capturing it in bronze. She has exhibited at the Mill Brook Gallery in Concord, NH, Art Walk & Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH, Copley Society in Boston, MA, New Glass Review in Corning, NY, Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough, NH, and the Monadnock Fine Arts Gallery in Keene, NH. The notion of this sculpture forms from a Native American legend or story of the `Children who refused to walk'. In order to get the babies to move from four legs to two a handful of pebbles were thrown into the air and as they scattered they changed into beautifully colored butterflies. The children were so delighted they jumped up and began to chase the butterflies.The sculpture measures 9 1/8 h x 5" w x 5" deep overall, with a 2 5/8" square base.
