I was learning about myths and legends so I decided to create my own mythical creature. It's inspired by the Native American Rainbow Crow and the Hippocampus from Greek mythology. It's a mixture of the two - both are kind and brave. The Divine Dipper can fly and swim and is courageous too, full of hope, colour and also strength. It's how I try to be and it's especially important in covid times when we are unsure of what is ahead. I created the first piece on paper and then made a 3D clay model too.
