BROWN MIDNIGHT DRAGON 8054 YTC SUMMIT This impressive statue depicts an fierce winged serpent with talons outstretched and ready to strike anything that alerts his defenses. Beautifully sculpted, this giant of a beast is hand painted in amazing detail from its fleshy grey colored wings to the leathery brown dragon hide. He stands a whopping 14-1/2 inches tall and is supported upon a felt lined base that looks just like moss cover stone. This dragon is not your normal friendly type and would easily have "Barney" and "Puff" for a light after dinner snack!
THE MEDIEVAL DRAGON European dragons are legendary creatures in folklore and mythology among the overlapping cultures of Europe. In European folklore, a dragon is a serpentine legendary creature with two pairs of lizard-type legs and bat-type wings growing from its back. Though a winged creature, the dragon is generally to be found in its underground lair, a cave that identifies it as an ancient creature of earth. Possibly, the dragons of European and Mid Eastern mythology stem from the cult of snakes found in religions throughout the world. Many European stories of dragons have them guarding a treasure hoard. Both Fafnir and Beowulf's dragon guarded earthen mounds full of ancient treasure. The treasure was cursed and brought ill to those who later possessed it.
