  • Thors comment

    "A sculptured Thor version of a japanese dragon flank the side of this oval. Very rough and primitive in its execution. This grey clay also goes very well with most spieces of trees, both decidious and conifers with grey and silver tones in the bark."

    WAYS OF THE DRAGON october edition 2020
    "The winged serpent exist in all ancient cultures from far east to the far west. It is a symbol belonging to kings and emperors, representing gods and wisdom, healing and thunder. It brings strength, health and good fortune and is a protector of treasures. What can be more suitable to set as a guardian for the bonsai tree? In this edition I have worked with the dragon theme, mainly the japanese bearded snake with rooster feets and the norse Midgårdsormen, that roams the sea after its own tail. But also the medieval fire spitting beast that dwells in it´s treasure chambers. My favourite though, is the dragon you can hint in the shape of a cloud on the sky, or in the smoke around the fire a dark autumn evening."
