The Butterfly That Cannot Fly

ART, Sabina Saad, Yellow Badge

Artist Sabina Saad sent this painting to The Butterfly Project of the Holocaust Museum in Houston. The idea behind this project was to remember 1.5 million that perished during the Holocaust. Sabina added to her work a caption saying:

My butterfly is gray; it is not colorful like all the butterflies, because it is sad like the children that perished during the Holocaust. The only point of color is the yellow patch that instead of happiness adds sadness. Its life is short like all the butterflies’ and of the children that died in the holocaust. It does not fly and it looks like those butterflies that people collect and guard in frames.
