Description

Level: Advanced
Luna moths often represent new beginnings and the continuing quest for truth and knowledge. They are drawn to the light of the moon. In some cultures, Luna moths are even thought to use the moon as a guide for orientation and navigation. These beautiful creatures flourish and are most abundant in the summer. We see this as a metaphor for humanity’s fascination with the heavens and a celebration of our species greatest achievement. "One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky”
