This design combines the elemental power of a dragon with Celtic knot motifs. Celtic dragons often live at the bottom of deep lakes or guard trees. In Britain, the dragon is now more commonly associated with Wales, as its national flag features a red dragon (Y Ddraig Goch).
This example has been cast from a mold I made of my original plaster carving. I used a combination of mineral oxide pigments added to C-144 masonry sand and blends of white and gray portland cements, and then hand cast the piece in my home studio. Once cured, I processed this sculpture with a dark blend of dyes and gave it metallic gold over copper highlights. A metal hook is embedded in the back, and it can be hung indoors or out. The mineral oxide pigments are 100% permanent and lightfast. The piece is further protected by a UV barrier coating.
