The Sphinx Moth reminds us that there are inspiring powers at play in the midnight.- Dolan Geiman
Like many of my artworks, Vaquera (Spinx Month) in the Vaquera series was inspired by nature. The Sphinx Moth, or Hawk Moth, resembles a hummingbird -- but it is nocturnal. Under the cloak of darkness, she is often overlooked and is able to go about her tasks unhampered by the rest of the diurnal world. This mimicry inspired me to adorn the most recent Vaquera with these amazing moths. Emblazoned upon her shoulders, this delicate insignia reminds us that there are inspiring powers at play in the midnight.
