Dragonfly Snow Globe

The distant mountains
Are reflected in the eye
Of the dragonfly

–Kobayashi Issa (1763–1828)

For centuries, art has sought to encapsulate the natural marvel of the dragonfly. From Native American pottery to the haiku of Issa and the poetry of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, many have reflected on the thin iridescent body, kaleidoscopic eyes, and gauzy wings capable of traversing oceans.  With a delicate green insect perched on a bough of blossoms, our Dragonfly Snow Globe joins the long tradition of artistic musings. 

Glass globe, Piano Black base.
