With its large eyes, iridescent wings, and unique ability to fly forward, backward, spin and hover, the dragonfly is a phenomenal member of the Garden Dweller™ family.
In ancient Japanese mythology, the country is often referred to as Akitsushima, or land of dragonflies’. You can also find the image of the dragonfly on Dutch tiles, in Flemish flower paintings, and even in medieval manuscripts.
The dragonfly on this piece has been carefully constructed from colorful leaves and flower buds, with great care taken to communicate its magical essence.
