The Dragonfly is a very important animal in Zuni history, returning each year with the rains of spring. The dragonfly reminds the Zuni people to give thanks and reverence to the Corn Maidens who allow the crops to be grown once more. This piece by Cody Chavez is carved from picture jasper with eyes and body accents of inlaid turquoise. About 1/4" tall, 2" long and a wingspan of 1 1/4".
