The Once and Mighty King

Oil on panel
5 1/2 x 7 inches

The word Dragonfly has its source in the myth that Dragonflies were once dragons.

Having inhabited our planet for almost 300 million years it is no wonder they have become a subject of intrigue with a far-reaching array of myths ranging from descendants of dragons to souls of the dead to a belief by some Native Americans as a sign of happiness, speed and purity.

The Dragonfly has captured the imagination and curiosity of cultures throughout the world. In almost every part of the world it symbolized change in the perspective of self realization; a maturity of depth and character.
