This dragonfly is specially made to fit on a very large wall. It is 6 feet wide and 4 feet long. The dyed blue and green velvet has painted purple markings. The body is made of florist's foam and the tail is made of soft foam. Heavy wire runs through the body and tail. The wings are gossamer blue with dark blue embroidered veining and three specially blended colors of sparkly fabric paint. This dragonfly is so big that it cannot be shipped, only personally delivered within 100 miles of Hickory (for $50), or you can come pick it up here in Conover. It's been hanging in my studio for four years and has become my favorite creation, but I must sell. It comes with a hand tinted hang tag describing the background of dragonflies, and a photo of the real Blue Emperor dragonfly that inspired me to make this one. It's very lightweight; simple wall hardware is included.
