Libelle--- art doll

 This is Libelle,
(the Dutch word for dragonfly)

Libelle is gathering up many dragonflies.

The dragonfly means many things
to many people over the world.
Amongst Native Americans,
the dragonfly is a sign of happiness,
speed and purity.
Purity because the dragonfly eats from the wind itself.
In most cultures a dragonfly landing on you means
CHANGE or GOOD LUCK.


Libelle is simply shades of white,
and made from polymer clay.
I emblellished her with vintage lace
beads, and silver dragonflies.

It's hard to tell in the photos,
but I imprinted her entire body with
flowers and vines.

Savor the Day!
