Scream of the Butterfly or the wordless cry of the butterfly is the silent sigh for redemption.
The woman, interpreted by moving artist Elles Grzybek, entangled in restrictions, muzzled by traditions and rules,
hidden behind shame, waiting for that one redeeming drop that will split the stone in two.
Now more than ever, the position of women in our society is under high pressure and now more than ever, those voices will not be silenced..
