Dave Zahradnicek, Boise Rigging Supply, and Kerry Covington, right, owner of Covington Fabrication welded the sculpture.

The butterfly is back — permanently, we hope.

On Monday, welders affixed the butterfly to the hand of the woman in the bronze “Taking Flight” sculpture, according to a spokeswoman for the Women’s and Children’s Alliance.

The butterfly was stolen for the third time on Monday last week. It was returned by Wednesday.

WCA officials opted for a different fix than previously (an extra bolt and strong epoxy). Chris Campbell, a spokeswoman for the nonprofit, said folks from Boise Rigging Supply and Covington Fabrication LLC welded the butterfly on Monday.
