At the Denver Art Museum the piece by Swentzell titled, Something Special, really left an impression on me. The piece was a young girl holding a butterfly, it was made out of clay, bronze and silver. The butterfly was made out of silver and the girl was made out of clay and bronze. The silver is more valuable than the clay which is why I believe Swentzell made the butterfly silver and the little girl out of clay. The meaning I got from the piece was, we take the little things in life for granted when a lot of times they are the most important or valuable. I related to this piece, because I believe we take a lot for granted and don’t truly realize their value or appreciate them until they are gone.
