“In his blue gardens, men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars”
– F.Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (1925)
Behold the death of a Monarch – Flickering about without purpose or reason, embodying the unconsciousness of Jay Gatsby’s party guests, the moth is a superficial and tragic creature.  Drawn to the light it seeks security yet finds itself face to face with a harbinger of death. Constantly attracted to the brightness of the party’s extravagance, they unknowingly lead themselves towards self-destruction.
