These common depictions of man possibly in a form of worship, to a god, can be supportive of the unity of all mankind's origin in Adam and Eve and then the offspring of Noah's sons Japheth, Shem and Ham. (Pix by JGL)
8:1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;
2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat…
14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
15 And God spake unto Noah, saying,
16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.
17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth…
9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

“Vanessa cardui is a well-known colourful butterfly, known as the painted lady …V. cardui is one of the most widespread of all butterflies, found on every continent except Antarctica and South America… Migration V. cardui occurs in any temperate zone, including mountains in the tropics. migrates from North Africa and the Mediterranean to Britain and Europe in May and June, and from the Red Sea basin, via Israel and Cyprus, to Turkey in March and April… British painted ladies do undertake an autumn migration, making 14,500 km (9,000 mi) round trip from tropical Africa to the Arctic Circle in a series of steps by up to six successive generations…V. cardui is known for its distinct migratory behaviour. In California, they are usually seen flying from north to north-west. These migrations appear to be partially initiated by heavy winter rains in the desert where rainfall controls the growth of larval food plants… global climatic events, such as el Niño, may affect the migratory behavior… V. cardui displays a unique system of continuous mating, throughout all seasons, including the winter. During its migratory process, these painted lady butterflies start breeding, and reproduce entirely throughout their migration… visual system that resembles the visual system of a honey bee. Adult V. cardui eyes contain ultraviolet, blue, and green photoreceptors…” Wikipedia
The complexity of this insect's behavior or of any other is profoundly complicated. As well, Metamorphosis is a highly organized event with the turning on and off of enzymes to produce the necessary components of each stage of change. These are precisely organized and not a haphazard events. It is reasonable to accept this as evidence for a Creator.
Genesis 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

"The buttes are clearly stratified, with three principal layers. The lowest layer is the Organ Rock Shale, the middle is de Chelly Sandstone, and the top layer is the Moenkopi Formation capped by Shinarump Conglomerate." (Wikipedia) Please note that these rocks have the appearance of being laid down in a water/mud slurry over vast areas of the Southwest US. The image below the buttes is of petrified ripples preserved in the sandstone. Dinosaur prints are also found in some strata. These strata are felt to be layered out below the water and ash laid strata of the Painted Desert areas of the Southwest US. They are about 5200 ft elevation in the valley and about 6200 ft at the buttes. Thus these areas would have to have been thrust upward during plate tectonics movement. These kinds of observations are found throughout the dried surface of the earth and are consistent with the Noah Flood Account.
