About the Artwork:
Orchid was the first guardian to begin her eternal Dream. Sleeping in this enchanted wood, she was hemmed in, separated from the human world. A place of eternal fantasy, where the leylines of reality could be kept safe in her dreaming. She guards one half of the Needle, a great relic Titania used to sew the very fabric of reality. As the fog of rest cleared from her eyes, she knew immediately the Needle must be in danger.
She searched through the branches into the infinite cosmos for her twin guardian, but she had long since disappeared from her watchpost.
“Oh, the Dream is faded, the Stitch in need of repair… Where art thou, sister Panella?”
