Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly
Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky.
~Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Silent Noon
For someone who was initially so resistant about carving a dragonfly piece, I’ve become something of a junkie: I can’t get enough of them! As soon as the warm weather came this year to NYC, I began encountering them all the time- on the sidewalk, in central park, coming out of the subway, etc. I always feel like I’m being visited by a magical being. It was with that feeling in mind that I carved this, my newest piece honoring both the dragonfly and damselfly.
