The symbolism of dragonflies

Dragonflies have been around for millions of year - one fossil dates back over 300 million years so it is no wonder so many myths and legends have grown up around them. Many cultures hold the dragonfly in esteem and here are some of the symbolism surrounding them.

  • In some native American tradition, dragonflies were thought to hold the souls of the dead and a visit from one was a visit from an ancestor.
  • Dragonflies in many cultures symbolize change and purity. Change - because of the different stages a dragonfly goes through and purity because they are always associated with pure, fresh water. This may also be influenced by the way the iridescence which allows them to appear different colors, also highlights the aspect of change.
  • Many cultures believe the dragonfly stand for victory, power and prosperity. These little creatures live amazing lives - they are born and live under water for a couple of years before bursting to the surface, live to the max then die in only a few weeks
  • Because they fly and live for such a short time, the dragonfly epitomizes how to live in the present, in how to make the very best of the time you have.
  • For the Japanese, dragonflies symbolize good luck, peace and prosperity. Because the islands that make up Japan can be seen as being in the shape of a dragonfly, this is a particularly potent symbol for them.new light and joy
  • For those searching for meaning in their own life, dragonflies symbolizes the sense of self that comes with age and maturity.
  • The color of dragonflies appear to change as a result of reflecting and refracting light. Because of that they can appear to create an illusion so, when you hold the dragonfly as your symbol you show the world only what you want them to see. At the same time they allow you to see through illusions.

Dragonfly Meanings

The dragonfly is an insect with large eyes that are multifaceted, two sets of transparent wings, and a body that is elongated. They are similar in appearance to damselflies, with the main difference being that the dragonfly holds their wings perpendicular to their body. There are over 5,680 species of dragonflies in the world, and they have always evoked feelings of intrigue and different forms of symbolism in various cultures throughout the world.

What do dragonflies represent? That depends upon what area of the world and what culture we are speaking about. Europeans consider the dragonfly to be sinister, while Romanian folklore pegs the insect as a former horse that became possessed by the devil. The Swedish lore suggests that dragonflies have the job of weighing the souls of humans, while the Welsh associate them with snakes.

On the brighter side where the dragonfly is not considered to be something evil or bad, the Japanese associate the insect with the seasons of summer and early autumn. They are also recognized as symbols of happiness, strength, and courage. What do dragonflies represent in China? The answer is prosperity, harmony, and good luck. Other more generalized symbolisms that the dragonfly represents are poise, power, maturity, depth of character, living life to the fullest, becoming self aware, and defeating illusions that were self created.With an insect that has inspired so many cultures to develop lore and symbolism pertaining to it, it's no wonder the dragonfly is often a popular theme for both jewelry and home decorating.

Many people like to bring dragonflies into their home decor. When used for this purpose, the dragonfly represents a peaceful environment that incorporates the beauty of nature along with the mystery of the dragonfly. Modern artists also like to use these insects as subjects for such works as posters and framed art work to display in the home. Dragonflies have also inspired many decorative motif designs that are used for home furnishings and fabric for home decorating.

Dragonflies are many times the subject of Art Nouveau designs in jewelry pieces. They are also a popular theme used in making Native American Zuni pottery pieces. Dragonflies are both beautiful and colorful, which makes them a great subject for jewelry. The wings of the insect are perfect for creating stunning pieces using colorful gemstones or shiny precious metals such as gold or silver. Many necklaces, pins, earrings, and hair accessories that feature dragonflies can be found.

Culture also comes into play in jewelry that features dragonflies. For example, a piece of dragonfly jewelry when given as a birthday gift in Japan means you wish that person happiness, strength, and courage. For Native Americans, dragonfly jewelry represents renewal after facing challenging times in life. Colored dragonfly jewelry, in most cultures, has the meaning of overcoming self made illusions. This is symbolic of how the color of the insect is dependant upon the way the light reflects off of it, symbolic of how humans sometimes see things the way the choose to. The jewelry also represents growth, maturity, and making the most out of life in the time that we have.

All of these meanings are sure to make wearing a piece of dragonfly jewelry, or incorporating a dragonfly theme into your home's decor mean something more than it did before learning about its symbolism.

Unique Shelves Change the Mood of a Room

Unique Shelves Change the Mood of a Room

Zig Zag Wall Shelf

An easy way to add interest to a bedroom, living room or family room is to add some unique shelving. Shelves come in so many interesting configurations including corner shelves, floating shelves and zig zag shelves and they can often tuck into a corner that you are not really using anyway.

With small shelves, you can add some colorful accessories such as a vase, candle or silk flowers in bright contrasting colors to draw the eye. Even though the shelves take up space, you may find that adding them makes the room look bigger instead of smaller. Shelves can be made of wood, metal or glass although if you rent it is better to use a lightweight material.

When buying shelving, consider the size of the space you have, the weight that will go on the shelf and the effect you are working towards. Style makes a difference too. If you like a more modern style, then look for contemporary shelves. You do have the option to take existing shelves and alter them with paint or stain for an antique look or more rustic look.

Shelves can also create a shadow box effect, for display of one item to be hung on the wall. Another option is a thick frame that is hung and used as a shadow box.

Not all shelves need to take up floor space, either. Ledges and corner shelves are often mounted on the wall and do not even go all the way to the floor. You can plot out the space of your room on a piece of graph paper, and pencil in the location that you wish to add the shelves. This will help you see how much space each item in your room uses and you can measure out paper to represent your existing furniture and move it around the diagram to find the best configuration.

Below are just a few examples of unique wall shelves. Click the link for a bigger picture and more details.
