A Paler Shade of Being by Caniglia

I considered buying this print about a year ago from Shocklines. It's considered to be a piece belonging most appropriately to the horror genre for reason which may or may not be obvious. But "Paler Shade of Being" is definitely one of his most tame works. Amazinlgy, this piece was completed using only watercolours and pencil, and no other medium.

Caniglia's work normally possesses a type on patina that seems to have survived age and rust. Caniglia's art is intensely human. Visit his gallery.

Its because of what the dragonflies are eating right? They eat insects, this girl is, um, dead and decomposing. If you opened her eyelids, there would be a seething mass of maggots.
Or am I way off base here?

Is there symbolism with dragonflies I don't know about? What's your take on it?

Uhm, I maggots definitely didn't come to mind, that's for sure. lol

I don;'t know that the dragonflies have any sort of symbolism. He looks like he's n a very natural state. So, yeah, he could be dead. But maggots? Eeew, noooo.
