DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Tamara requested the design of a dragofly with the names of her children, Anna and Elia, incorporated into the wings.

Dragonflies have several meanings according to many cultures, from strength to magic, but the most common ones are grace and transformation.

We placed a sun between the wings as a symbol of eternity and joy, shaped by tiki hands which are symbols of protection, and the spot in the middle signifies how her children are in the center of Tamara´s life, her standing stone.

The head contains a fish hook as a symbol of prosperity.

The two korus (new life) on the tips of the wings represent her two children.
