Butterfly-Cross Paper Cuttings

"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,

the master calls a butterfly." -- Richard Bach

Paper-Cutting Artist Tong Steinle

Butterfly-Cross is special cross images that are made as fold and cut paper cutting pictures. They are art of crosses, and one of creative Christian art works.

All crosses are created with butterflies, which is how the name Butterfly-Cross originated.

And all the Butterfly-Crosses are cut individually with different and unique butterfly ideas.

That's Why every cutting design is very beautiful creative, very unique, and none other is repeated, so none are the same.

It is meaningful, thoughtful, and it is great gifts to anybody that you think and love about.

"You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder."
-- Author Unknown

The Russian word for "butterfly" means "bow tie";

In some old cultures, butterflies also symbolize rebirth in a new life after being inside a cocoon for a period of time.

(Reference by Wikipedia.org)

In the Christian religion, butterfly represents rebirth and a new beginning.

This was my original train of thought to add butterflies in my cross art paper cuttings. This has influenced me to cut a lot of crosses with butterflies in my Christian art.
