A butterfly rests on the mask. When mask rises and falls rhythmically with human breath, the butterfly flaps its wings. What is interesting is that who wears the mask won’t immediately notice the existence of the butterfly. When an oncoming passer-by observes a dancing butterfly on the mask and focuses eyes on your face, he doesn’t know that the "life" of a butterfly is given by your breath. Then you will feel a delicate balance between the two lives inside and outside the mask. Also, the butterfly has the function to indicate the positive side and the inside or outside.
