a decorative stand comprised of two horizontal panels in four pieces, frame a three dimensional dragonfly figure; several round, black metal bars run above and below the dragonfly, and run vertically to connect the panels with a rectangular base below; the stand's components are primarily black lacquer; however, the panels each have green areas, with hints of gold and silver, that suggest blowing grasses and/or flowing water with swooping and varied lines, and the dragonfly has iridescent purple and blue chips in its wings and around its eyes and a spray of silver color on its back and lower wings
