This desktop-sized art piece is the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves dragonflies. The back of the frame has the following inscription:
"Dragonflies are fascinating insects that can fly up to 45m/h, see 30 primary colours, and have inhabited the earth for over 300 million years. Their ability to change directions instantly teaches us to be flexible and embrace new opportunities. May they be a reminder to seize the day and not sweat the little things."
The artwork begins with hand-cutting a single piece of cardstock for the outline of the dragonfly. Then coloured tissue paper is meticulously cut to size and added to the wings and body, making them slightly translucent. The wings are then curved slightly and the insect is mounted on sturdy cardstock. Each piece looks like a real specimen and is sure to be a conversation starter.
