Early Years Butterfly Ensemble Set of 4 Instruments
Early Years Height Butterflies are intentionally designed at a lower height to be accessible to the youngest aspiring musicians. They can be purchased as singles or as a full collection or added to the Flower Collection where they harmoniously complement each other to create a natural, botanical aesthetic. In addition to their sculptural beauty, the Butterflies emit the pleasing sounds of chimes. These instruments resonate with a beautifully soft, sweet gong sound.

These botanically inspired, beautiful sculptural musical instruments can be installed as a full collection or be added to the Flower Instrument Collection where they complement each other in perfect harmony.  They bring a wonderful nature element to a childcare, park, children's museum, restaurant and many other creative outdoor environments. They are the ideal complement to a playground area, nature garden or sound park.

Each Butterfly has different notes and colors which helps to make the collection look and sound like an enchanted musical garden. The beautiful tones allow anyone to create a musical symphony, whether used by a professional musician, or for the first time ever by an individual of any age and ability. With these instruments, there are no wrong notes, every note sounds perfect. 

These instruments are built to withstand all normal weather conditions. They are constructed with anodized aluminum wings, a powder coated steel frame and sturdy stainless steel hardware. The full set of 4 includes 1 of each color, yellow, orange, indigo and turquoise. Each instrument measures approximately 20-3/8"w x 12-3/8"d x 34"h (heights may vary, depending on installation).

Why the butterfly?

Flying around the world for millions of years, the butterfly has been granted a deep meaning by nearly all great civilizations, religions, and spiritual traditions on Earth. To Native Americans, the butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and color. In the traditional Chinese and ancient Greek cultures, the butterfly is the symbol of immortality. To the ancient Greeks, it is also the symbol of the soul. In Christianity the butterfly symbolizes rebirth, immortality and resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope and life...however the most common belief is that they are an indication of good luck. 

Butterflies have such a magical presence and quality as they gently dance on the air from flower to flower. Yellow Butterflies are regarded as symbols of joy, happiness and creativity.  Orange Butterflies are symbols of encouragement, excitement, and passion.
