Dragonfly Above Io, Yvonne Jacquette, pastel on paper, 14 x 17 inches, 2000
“Based on images of Jupiter’s moon Io taken from the Galileo space probe, Jacquette adds a dragonfly, a kind of messenger from Earth. The dragonfly represents organic life, and its wings are symbolic of space flight and the Galileo spacecraft. The Galileo spacecraft reached Jupiter in December 1995.”
