The wisdom of change and adaptability in life is born by the dragonfly totem. The dragonfly, as a sacred animal, is related to the symbolism of transformation
and light. It can remind you to add a little more lightness and joy into your life when the dragonfly shows up in your life. Many that have this animal as a totem
will be prone to dive deeply into their feelings and their true colours shine.
The medium of this sculpture Spanish alabaster, what’s know for its fine crystal structure as one of the best carving material, however it’s not a very hard stone,
only 2-3 on the scale of 1-10. Therefore it’s best to carve minimalist style figures, that not require highly detailed relevance.
The sculptures shaped out from a large boulder the traditional way, with chisels and mallet. Detailed with rasps and files, polished with standard water base sand papers.
The polishing process starts with 100 and concludes with 2000 grit, what gives the stone a glass like smoothness and shiny surface.
It’s a brand new original stone carving by Gabriella (sagastone), presently displayed in Vancouver Canada. The alabaster stone has a little orange shade, what shows
amazing when placed with light behind, or in window. The base, is a self collected Utah USA origin Rhyolite wonder stone, red burgundy color. Rhyolite sometimes called
Jasper. The only reason why wasn’t used for gemstone pendant, because lacking its pattern. The sculpture pinned and stone epoxy glued to the base.
The alabaster sealed and buffed with natural non toxic bee wax, not need maintenance, however a few drops of olive oil and a soft cloth buff every other months keeps it
fresh and new looking.
