Polyphemus and Oak Leaves  

 The Polyphemus moth (Antheraea Polyphemus) gets its name because of the large eyespot on the hind wings. It is named after the giant cyclops from Greek mythology who had a single large, round eye in the middle of his forehead.the moth reminds us to embrace change and remain open to new experiences.

The oak leaves symbolize longevity, fertility and honesty. The druids believe that catching a fallen oak leaf brings good luck and prosperity.
