Swiss Dragon

This dragon, with the Swiss cross on his shield and with one of the four claws on his left hand missing (to represent and honor the memory of a deceased son) guards the courtyard of a family residence in Morrow, Ohio, dignified & watchful.  I enjoyed "inventing"an imaginary animal, yet making it anatomically correct.  My favorite part of the sculpting was creating the journey of the long tail as it wraps around the figure.
