Original Acrylic on Canvas
Delicate, leaf shaped appendages make this "other-worldly" member of the seahorse family a master of camouflage! These peaceful and elusive animals live only in the sea-grass meadows of Australia.
In contrast to most animals, it's the male sea dragon who carries and protects the eggs while they incubate. For this reason, the leafy sea dragon is seen as a symbol of fatherhood and the gentle masculine.
This original painting features a dramatic mix of bright and deep tones. The classical realism style blends well with any decor. Makes a thoughtful gift for anyone who loves the mystery and beauty of nature or the ocean. Can also be given as a symbol of dedicated fatherhood.
