Ancient Egyptians saw a parallel between the linen wrappings of their mummies and the butterfly's chrysalis - a term derived from the Greek world for gold.

In Aztec tradition butterflies and moths were a symbol of reincarnation, new life and immortality. Even in death, their mounted beauty can remain intact for centuries.

In some monastic traditions the cocoon represents the contemplative who through isolation from the turmoil and distractions of everyday life seeks to transform the soul.
