In Dreamtime, there weren't many people or living beings. Every being used to understand each other's language and they didn't know of death. One day, a little bird fell from a tree and broke its neck. The older knowledgeable birds and animals announced that the spirits have taken the bird from the world to get a new bird. Although everybody accepted this idea, they wanted to confirm this by watching the bird. The caterpillars volunteered to do so. The elders ordered the caterpillars to watch the bird from clouds in the sky throughout the winter. One fine early day of spring, the caterpillars transformed into butterflies and returned to the camp with beautiful bodies. Since then, the caterpillars spend the winters in cocoons to transform into butterflies, a wonderful gift of nature. In this design, Fay depicted the spirits watching over the Dreamtime creatures from the sky.
