The Pro Hart Gallery is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the outback town of Broken Hill. It’s chock full of his paintings and artwork. This painting of a dragonfly is one of his most well-known and famous pieces. It’s interesting how Pro came to paint the image of a dragonfly. He was watching ants going about their work. He saw them busily working on a dead dragonfly and carrying it bit by bit to their nest. So it was the ants that first captured his attention and interest, which he connected to the wisdom found in the Bible book of Proverbs “Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise,” – Proverbs 6:6 (NKJV) We can learn a lot from nature and ants.
