A landmark within the tranquil Dragonfly Lake, these magnificent giant dragonflies sculptures feature casts of children riding on the creatures' backs. The laser-cut mesh pattern used on the wings of the dragonflies encases colourful art glass. Their eyes - blue in one sculpture and red in the other - are made of hand-blown glass flecked with gold. A touch of human warmth amidst the grandiose garden, this sculpture of the child riders is an ode to the joys of childhood.
