  • Thors comment

    "These dragons are sculptured to look like chinese temple dogs, with a hint of demon like features, that covers the corners. The wall in beetween is made out of their twisting reptile bodies. The squarish shape gives you the advantage of four different fronts to choose from for your tree."

    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."
