Description

superbly modeled, the striding dragon cast in suspended movement, its elongated sinewy body raised on four powerful limbs terminating in three-clawed paws, trailed by a long curling tail, the imperious head held high and proud atop a slender S-shaped neck, with a single horn above protruding oval-shaped eyes and a long upturned snout exposing its sharp fangs, the body and mane finely detailed with neatly incised lines, richly gilded and with traces of malachite encrustation
