If I remember my mythology correctly, a butterfly on a stick was an icon of the Minoan religion, associated with the legend of the Minotaur. I think the technical term is Labrys, from which we get "labyrinth". Minotaur/Minoan/Minnesota? Hmm?
The spots on the wings aren't symmetrical. Counting each wing section, left to right, there are 8-6-4-8 orange spots. Also, counting in the same manner, there are 16-14-14-18 white spots (I think). The white spots are either single or double spots so I tried using them as Morse code dots and dashs but without success. I also tried relating them to the Tribute's line & letter count the same lousy results.

It may be. However Kit's brush strokes are so that you can see faces everywhere. For example the red color stroke to the right of the butterfly could be lips for another face. Santa claus looking face.

I'm new at this so be gentle. the woman reminds me of a cherokee and if you look up cherokee monarch, you will find a dog breed called the Cherokee Monarch that is a hybrid dog from the Papillon and the Russian Toy Terrier. It originated in France, which ties back to the ViVe statement.
This also leads me to think the dig site is near the bench with the inscription for the two dogs from the same family (Duke and Louie Shields), or for the one for Mark Osbourne that says he walked there everyday with his Mom and dog Olivia. The Christensen Fountain was made to honor Paulina Christensen who was a teacher who was known to be devoted to animals. Someone also posted a picture of a drinking fountain that is shaped like the axe handle.
Like I said, I'm new and less experienced. I have an entire other hypothesis heading North from the Heigold House Facade up into Jeffersonville, with clues fitting in all over the place there! I'm stuck in Michigan so I'm will to help anyone that wants to go check anything out.
