A young faerie man skillfully guides a gilded butterfly through his golden hoop in Paula Slater’s “The Butterfly Trainer.” The faerie’s voluminous wings help keep him afloat as he stands gracefully perched atop a stone. This sculpture reflects Slater’s high attention to detail- even the veins on the backs of the subject’s hands and feet are visible! “The Butterfly Trainer” captures the delicate movement of a single instant, leaving the viewer hard pressed to decide if it is faeries or butterflies who have the most beautiful wings.
