14.25" x 14.25" x 2.5 (Framed to 16"x 16" x 3.75) Pen and Ink on hand cut, suspended, layered paper (Shadowbox Paper Sculpture). Chinese Mythology regards the Dragon as a fearsome and mighty creature, as the noblest of animals they are said to be just and benevolent. The Azure Dragon is considered the creature of the East and as such also corresponds to the spring season. This piece depicts the personification of Spring, embracing a bouquet of Camellias. The flowers gently fall out of her grasp as she caresses the claw of her guardian who is offering her the stars.
