A butterfly would also often be included in paintings, representing their loving guardianship over human souls. For some cultures the butterfly was a symbol of the soul of loved ones who’d passed on, coming to visit their earthly relatives. For the Mexican culture, the butterfly was a representation of the ‘Black Sun’, symbolising the resurrection of your ancestor to something new or a new body.
In Russia, butterflies are sometimes called ‘duschichka’ (in Russian dialect) derived from the word ‘dusha’ meaning soul. It was no different in the Celtic world – In the Celtic world, butterflies were seen as the souls of the recently departed.
When christianity took over they ruined some of the lore making the red ones devils or witches or other nonsense.
