The Parable of the Mantis (La Parábola de la Mantis = the original title) is another Spanish wordless short movie I found. When I was posting the video link, the children’s poetry came to my mind.
The praying mantis doesn’t pray:
He simply likes to pose that way.
The sect which he’s an insect in
Leads with the left and not the chin.
— David McCord
And Now Here It Is
A very charming wordless story about a caterpillar in despair, a bad/good mantis and a butterfly. I always knew that butterflies are magical, by the way. Bewitching!
