The serafinas are the elementals that live in the water; bubbles, swirls, whirls, etc.  They keep the water alive by moving through it.  This piece is a tribute to the beautiful pond of which I am the steward, filled with fishes, frogs, snapping turtles; and a Crocodile figurine, one of my spirit animals.  I swim in the pond every day in warm weather, singing a water blessing song that I learned, and becoming a Serafina myself, keeping the water alive.
