Dragonfly Dream: Dragonflies are beautiful creatures, that have a magical transformation after two years as a Water Nymph (lava). During its life the Nymph catches and eats small live prey at every opportunity, molting from 5 to14 times until it is fully-grown. Fascinating thing is if they loose a limb during times between molting, it grows back, in their next cycle of being.
Again am envisioning a patten constellation of ancestral petroglyphs, as a dreamscape around the dragonfly, that is perched upon a piece of 400,000 year old Emmer Wheat. As of yet not compromised by Monsanto, GMO genetic interference...
I would imagine after life in the water for two years or more, the Dragonfly darting about the sky for its next 4 days of life. Would seem like a spiritual experience and the things it would see may be like magic, or even be magical.
I believe the ancient petroglyph symbols may well have been decorated, with colour applied with a twig a bit like aboriginal painting of dreamtime. Also the way these symbols make me think, maybe they are a language that resonates to the soul. Symbols that our ancestors left to remind us, who we are...

Wow it is gorgeous and pretty and colourful. Amazing artist!
Such a striking design and the colours are wonderful. I love contemplating our ancestors when I drink from it too. We have sis of these mugs in different designs and love them all. The mugs are a good size and, unlike many mugs, have nice big handles that don't hurt your fingers. Wonderful. Thank you.
It was a difficult job choosing which print I wanted as they are all so beautiful ! Delighted with Betwixt and Between, just love it, and I'll be back for the Bee print at some point plus a set of cards. Thank you so much Peter.
Just lovely. I have the shamanic bee print too and the reproduction quality of the image on this mug is excellent. The only downside is that it causes bickering between me and my husband over who will use it each day! The mugs are lovely too; a good size and the handles are comfortably large. Thank you.
