“Seeing is different than being told.”
Proverb from Kenya
-————

As I researched Kenya, where this girl is from, I was struck by the fact that Kenya… is a butterfly rich country. And so it made sense to adorn this young one with the intense, piercing gaze… with the brilliance of butterflies.

    Such a clear gaze, and there’s something outstanding about “butterfly rich”…

  • Isn’t that gaze striking? And yes – ‘butterfly rich’… I was so surprised to learn that of Kenya, and then it struck me how beautiful and butterfly-like they are with the colors they wear. And it all makes perfect sense. :)
