DeVIA motifs of butterfly,bird house, hands, flowers, eyes, clock and flowers. (also dots)
Deaf butterfly has a background with audism experience. Big clock had no hour and minute hands represents it had been lost in mainstream with no access to education by deprived language. Then it bloomed when it learned ASL and found a home of Deaf community (birdhouse). New clock placed with hour and minute hands. It represents a Deaf Identity growth. The orange threat/rope came with tiny clock that i like to leave it there for hope.
