Speedy movers, dragonflies enchant with their multifaceted eyes, elongated bodies and with wings that sparkle with the rays of light. Even though they are believed to be one of the oldest creatures, they still hold an element of mystery and intrigue, symbolizing both happiness and malevolence.

Inhabitants of two realms—water and air, dragonflies have fluttered through the world for almost 300 million years. Energetic and poised in the summer warmth, their colors reflect and refract the light; maybe that’s why they’re connected to the breathers of fire, the mighty dragons. The Chrysler Museum's glass collection includes examples of dragonflies by the Tiffany Studio and Émile Gallé.
