In this homage to Dragonfly in Amber by Suzanne D. Gaadt, the artwork celebrates a few of the symbols and meanings contained mainly in the second book of the beloved Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. See blog for more description here http://giveafig.net/blog The dragonfly glows within an amber sphere, along with other icons. Notice the two rings, interwoven like an infinity symbol. They represent Claire’s wedding rings: the gold one from Frank and the Celtic silver ring from Jamie. There is a star-filled dome that refers to the King’s chamber. The top ring doubles as a compass, alluding to “Voyager,” the next book in the series. The word “CHANGE” is inscribed there with the “N” pointing north on the Eiffel Tower—a nod to Claire’s time in Paris during the war. A fleur de lys of France sits at the south point. The silver ring contains two hearts for Jamie and Claire above the purple mountains of the Highlands. The curved lines on either side of the dragonfly create balance and harmony while honoring the Gaelic culture and the medieval monks who illuminated manuscripts. The spirals also represent horseshoes for good luck, clefs and musical notes, snakes, and the twisting storylines of plot and subplot. This knotwork weaves in and out of the standing stones of Craigh na Dun to ground the entire design in Scotland.
