Discovery – Created in October 2021 as part of a series “Set Free”

“Mistakes are the portals of discovery.” by James Joyce

Discovery is an image close to my heart as it was supposed to be something completely different. After a feeling of frustration and failure, I was inspired by the quote – “Mistakes are the portals of discovery.” by James Joyce IRISH NOVELIST AND POET, and decided to create my own portal to discovery.

The significance of the butterfly in Irish folklore attributes it to the soul and thus it has the ability to cross into the otherworld. It is also a symbol of transformation and creation. The experience of embracing my failure and letting it lead me to something new is what I would love the viewer to remember.

I’d love you all to embrace the fails peps, as they may lead to something wonderful. Don’t let the mistakes stop you from fulfilling your dreams, I hope they lead you to discoveries. And I’d love to see what wonderful discoveries you have made.
