Dragonfly - Knot of Transformation, Wisdom, Maturity

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

MEANING: In Native American Shamanism, Dragonfly medicine is of the dream time and the illusionary facade we accept as physical reality. Dragonfly’s shifting of color, energy, form and movement explodes into the mind of the observer, bringing hints of memory of a time when magic reigned. Some legends say that Dragonfly was once Dragon. Dragon was full of wisdom and flew through the night bringing light with its fiery breath that brought forth magic and the illusion of changing form. Then Coyote was able to trick Dragon into changing form to Dragonfly and Dragon got caught in its own facade and lost his power. Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. It brings messages of wisdom and enlightenment and communications from the elemental world. Dragonfly medicine beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which you need to change. If you feel the need for change, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation. THE CARVING: My Carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood. For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile. SIZE: The last picture has the piece on a quilting board, lined up on the 1 inch marks. So subtract 1 inch from the height and width for the stock size. Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece. Please contact if we don't have your country listed for shipping outside of the U.S. International orders will be sent Parcel Post.

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, we will pull the darkest board we have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so our carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
