A beautiful symbol used on 19th century memorials was the butterfly. It has its roots in the ancient Greek myth of Eros and Psyche. Psyche, the symbol of the soul, was represented by butterfly wings or a butterfly in classical art
the soul had come to live on Earth but longed to be reunited with its divine origin. The butterfly on the memorial cross symbolizes the soul leaving its earthly prison.
