Pikkusinisiipi – a small blue


Small blue was a frequently seen butterfly in my childhood in Heinola in the 80´s. Critically endangered butterfly has previously been seen in Finland only in two places. Biodiversity is vanishing in an accelerating level. Common species have become vulnerable. With this piece I went back in time to the beautiful meadows of small blues and wanted to express the feeling of a radical change of the decreasing population. Fly, butterfly!
