Metamorphisis Two - The Caterpillars' Journey Continued

There are more photos posted on my Surroundings blog of the continuing transformation of the two caterpillars I've been raising.

This transformation is very symbolic of the spiritual metamorphosis that takes place as we progress towards enlightenment.

The other day, my Teacher used a word to describe what happens when the transformation is complete, and it is a word I had never heard before: "Imago". Interestingly, today I was reading about caterpillars and butterflies when I came across the word in a diagram, seen below.
