This is the 'crysalis', the beginning of creation and the transformation into a higher creature or being. Here we have a faery spirit all huddled into herself, awaiting a rebirth or just emerging from it, much like a caterpillar would into a butterfly. Around her is a border of plants, beginning as roots, then as dormant plant shoots, and then to buds and blooms of flowers as you follow them up the border.
