The Metamorphosis serie presents an optimistic vision of death seen as a transformation, a passage, such as that of the caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

The idea started with an artwork from 2010 depicting a coffin with butterfly wings and evolved to bigger canvas and finally to a painted (real) coffin. The coffin cover shows an explosion of colors representing the moment in which the soul leaves the body, becoming pure energy.
