Butterflies occupy an important place in Japanese culture, its traditions and beliefs. One of the most common persuasions is that the winged creature is the embodied soul of a man. It doesn’t matter, if the person is alive or gone. For centuries the Japanese have believed the soul is able to wander around in the form of a butterfly. It may suddenly appear in a place while its master is on the way there. One of the signs says, if a butterfly flies into your home, you should prepare for the arrival of guests.

Despite the fact that a butterfly is someone’s soul, you don’t need to be afraid of it. On the contrary, even when it belongs to a deceased person, it appears only with the best intentions. They say once lived a man who had no wife, no children. One never saw him in love, and many thought he was weird because of the lonely life. When his days were close to an end, his brother’s widow and beloved nephew came to say goodbye to him. While the old man was asleep, a large and very beautiful white butterfly flew into the room.

The Butterfly landed on the pillow of the dying man. She returned there each time his relatives tried to drive her away with a fan. Finally, the nephew chased it into the garden and thence to the cemetery of the old Church. There she flew to a woman’s grave and disappeared. After returning home, the young man learned his uncle had died in peace with a smile on his face.

He told his mother what had happened, and she admitted that long ago the old man had a fiancée. The girl died shortly before the wedding, and the man vowed to remain faithful to her and never to marry. He fulfilled his promise, and the soul of the young bride arrived for him.

This touching, albeit sad legend about the butterfly reveals the attitude of the Japanese to these marvelous creations of nature. And millions of people around the world agree with the people of Japan. They admire butterflies and adorn clothing and interior items with the images of them. You love these amazing creatures too? Then you’ll like Butterfly Machine Embroidery Design, even if you live very far from the Land of the Rising Sun.
