"They guard the back door"

This artist does a lovely job, so these twins are the second dragons Ive ordered. They fit right above the back door. Not that anybody comes in, during COVID days. But if they did, theyd be warned: This way be dragons!

"Perfect entrance piece"

This is the third dragon Ive ordered here, and theyve all been exquisite. The wind detail on this one is particularly impressive. We have it hung over our doorway, and find ourselves walking by just to admire it. Shipping was awesome - item was very well secured. And it comes with the hardware installed so hanging it was extremely easy.

"Amazing!"

This sculpture is incredible. I was attracted to it because I like dragons. And this one is very similar to J. R. R. Tolkiens Smaug, the dragon. The craftsmanship is really beautiful. So happy to add it to my collection. Marsha
