Dehlila is a child with an abnormality; however, she is still a child at mind and heart. The butterfly symbolizes innocence and beauty. This sculpture has the basic form of a plastic babydoll and was plastered over. The clothing, hat, bow, legs, and face are all plastered. the right arm was cut off and then wired to be connected but at the same time unconnected from the child. Buttons, acrylic paint, and lace are also used to decorate this sculpture.
