Sprite of Spring or the Springbringer or Calÿaja (in fictional language) represents life and rebirth in the world of Springbringer. It fell from space as a seed and landed on a pond of swans one ancient evening “3000 suns ago” and began to sprout.
I saw the Sprite in my dream on December 2002 (the comic book image where the sprite and the swan meet).
Here are various manifestations of this fragile flower-like being of light:
- an etching aquatint: A Garden of Stars (2009), 11×25 cm
- a digital work made from a water color painting (2009), used as a poster for the Springbringer film
- a color pencil drawing (2011), 10×15 cm
- a clay statue (2007), 21x17x15 cm
- comic book pages where the Sprite meets Qwaidun the swan (2002-09)
