Dragons, the mythical creatures that have fascinated humanity for centuries, are diverse in their forms and symbolism across cultures. In European folklore, these majestic beings are often depicted as formidable creatures with wings, sharp claws, and the ability to breathe fire. They symbolize power, danger, and the eternal struggle between good and evil. European dragons are also known for their varying number of legs, from none to four or more, depending on the story. Conversely, in many Asian cultures, dragons are revered as symbols of profound spiritual significance. These Eastern dragons, often resembling long, serpentine creatures, are believed to embody the primal forces of nature, religion, and the universe. They are associated with wisdom, representing beings of immense knowledge and longevity. These majestic creatures are also believed to possess supernatural powers and are often linked to natural elements like wells, rain, and rivers. In some traditions, dragons are even said to have taught humans the art of speech. This exquisite bronze sculpture pays homage to the mystical allure of dragons. Created with the ancient lost-wax casting method, it captures the intricacies of these mythical beings, preserving their timeless appeal. Mounted gracefully on a black marble base and signed by the artist Fisher, this sculpture serves as a tribute to the enduring fascination that dragons continue to hold in cultures worldwide. Whether displayed for its artistic beauty or its rich symbolism, this sculpture invites you to explore the mesmerizing world of dragons.
