"One more for the collection."

I only buy from these artists. They are extremely nice and their art is incredible. I would buy so much more if I weren't disabled and had to wait for things to go on sale!

"Intricate hand-painting shows the artists skill"

This beautiful wooden dragon looks amazing. It is very delicate and we had a bit of difficulty getting assembled. Finally, with a very slight of glue we managed to get the wings to stay in place. The hand-painting is incredibly well donel

"Great Addition to Dragon Collection"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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 didnt want to press hard because it is fragile. We glued the parts in place.
