DRAGONFLY – MATURITY, CHANGE & SWIFTNESS
The Dragonfly is a symbol of maturity, change and swiftness. Dragonfly represent a self-understanding for mental and emotional maturity. The Dragonfly’s swift flight and its ability to move in all six directions radiate a sense of power and poise something that comes only with age and experience.
The Dragonfly can be seen in Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations art represented with its stout body with large compound eyes and chewing mouth parts. He has two pairs of elongated, membranous wings that always remain outstretched.
