In the Middle Ages, people believed that insects were evil, born from mud in a method called spontaneous generation. Maria Merian was only a child, but she disagreed. She watched carefully as caterpillars spun themselves cocoons, which opened to reveal summer birds, or butterflies and moths. Maria studied the complete life cycle of the summer birds, and documented what she learned in vibrant paintings.
