About the design:

Dreamcatchers originate with Native Americans. In one interpretation, the web-like design is meant to capture anything that may harm a sleeper. They were traditionally made from willow twigs and sinew or plant fibers. I had originally wanted to make a dreamcatcher design with a dragon made from part of the web and perhaps not immediately obvious. But, to do that, the design would have to be very large to get all the detail. So, I settled on this design in which the dragon enters from the outside and spirals toward the middle, with dragon scales hanging below. I will leave it up to you as to whether the dreamcatcher is allowing a good dragon dream to reach the sleeper or is preventing a bad one from doing so.
