This is the second sculpture commissioned by Home of the Innocents. This piece commemorates the over 200 children of Home of the Innocents buried at Cave Hill Cemetery, whose graves were previously unmarked. In this sculpture, Episcopal Deaconess Sister Emily Cooper shakes out a blanket with a butterfly pattern upon it. The butterflies become more dimensional and finally become 3 dimensional at the end, flying away. The blanket represents the care given to the children by the Deaconess, the butterflies symbolize these children and their ultimate release from this world.
