DEATHS WEB MOTH
"For centuries The Acherontia atropos—better known as Death’s-head hawkmoth has intrigued and frightened people. Long ago it’s ominous marking was considered a bad omen. Entomologist Moses Harris wrote in 1840that, “It is regarded not as the creation of a benevolent being, but the device of evil spirits—spirits enemies to man—conceived and fabricated in the dark, and the very shining of its eyes is thought to represent the fiery element whence it is supposed to have proceeded.” This artistic rendering serves as a reminder that giving light to negativity attracts destructive personalities and can weave webs that ensnare us from seeing beyond our own demons and ultimately death. It is also meant to serve as a symbol that our inner struggles that remain a part of us also reveal outward beauty of resilience and perseverance. " - Jordan Campbell
