Dragon’s Blood

Dragons are believed to roam in dark waters and steal the souls of anyone who dares to swim in them. As my mother was escaping the Jungles of Laos she approached the Mekong River to cross with me cradled in her womb.

Dragon’s Blood collection captures the superstitious belief of how water dragons fragment Hmong souls and our lifeblood is altered.
