Girls coming of age in Native American culture are often deified during a ceremony celebrating their transformation into womanhood. My sculpture, Butterfly, is inspired in part by a tradition where a young girl uses a buckskin robe to envelop herself in purifying ceremonial smoke. In my sculpture, she reaches out and releases the smoke in a gesture of renewal, the creation becoming the creator.
