"As Kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame” Gerard Manley Hopkins
|Life imitating art|
What a pity their lifecycle is so short, but what pleasure they bring in their brief moments of existence
Our house has become something of shrine to the dragonfly, and I surprised even myself with the number of dragonfly-themed artefacts we have.
Dragonflies literally drawing flame as candle-holders, a garden ornament and as a tifanny style lampshade.
|A tactile wall plaque|
|Just a few of the earrings and buttons|
|I love this pendant bought by my daughter|
|Art imitating life|
|And my favourite of all, this tiny bejewelled notebook, another gift from my daughter|
|Even the pages are adorned with dragonflies|
