Keepers of the Arts - Mexican Sculpture Culture Gifts
This dragon is very attractive. I like that it came in pieces, so I could leave the flame out. It looks like a more friendly dragon without the fire. It would be easier to handle if the holes made for the parts were deeper, because they fell out very easily. We didn't want to press hard because it is fragile. We glued the parts in place.
I just hung this beauty in my office and cannot stop looking at it. I was surprised and delighted when I unwrapped the package and discovered that it came in pieces for me to assemble. I used a firm but delicate touch to insert each feather into the body, and what resulted was a charming and colorful creature needing only to be suspended in the perfect location. I am thoroughly mesmerized by this lovely and whimsical work of art.
