In a vivid dream-like landscape, a large butterfly symbolising rebirth and resurrection has landed on the roof of a luminous tower. Its oversized eye looks in terror as a colossal crow is about to attack.

This work continues an interest in the Golden age Dutch still life and its underlying meaning and symbolism.

Tulips and towers stand to attention in front of the viewer, as if in a frieze or on parade. The towers and organic matter are slowly and awkwardly morphing into each other.
