Spring is here … and so are Christina’s Butterflies

TRD_ButterfliesSpring

Butterflies have been an important symbol for Christina Oiticica ever since she met her guardian angel in the form of a blue butterfly while traveling in the Mojave Desert. She and her husband, the author Paulo Coelho, even had a butterfly tattooed on their arms in guise of wedding bands.

Last year, Christina painted a series of three butterflies, the Blue Butterfly (Borboleta Azul), the Red Butterfly (Borboleta Vermelha) and the Gold Butterfly (Borboleta Dourada), which were presented to the public in the exhibition “Terra” at Galerie Espace_L in Geneva.

The Butterflies are now available in the Trois Roses et Demi Etsy store, either as individual photo prints or as a set of three (which will save you money compared to purchasing the individual prints):

The story behind … the Warrior of Light symbol

2015-02-06_WOLThe Warrior of Light is the symbol that was designed by Christina Oiticica to be used as logo for the Paulo Coelho Institute in Rio de Janeiro. The idea for the logo came to Christina when she had a dream of great flapping wings protecting the earth and all humans. When she woke up, she realized that the dream had been about Saint Michael, the Archangel, who is often depicted as an angelic warrior, armed with sword and shield. The logo is the artist’s interpretation of this sword and shield and represents both strength (the sword) and protection (the shield). The logo, due to its power, was adopted by Paulo Coelho on his official site and is now representing the image of the Warrior of Light, which appears in many of his online texts and publications.

Trois Roses et Demi has several jewellery items with the Warrior of Light symbol: a silver pendant necklace and the recently added silver and onyx statement bracelet and a pink gold version of the pendant. The latter 2 are made to order.
