Description

the broad, flat stone carved with the two fantastic creatures in profile, the larger dragon-fish rearing upward, its powerful body writhing in a tight S-curve, its long fins sweeping upward from the shoulders echoing the arch of the neck, the mouth open in a roar, a small phoenix next to the proper right side of the dragon, its legs tucked under and the neck and tail relaxed contrasting the unbridled energy of its companion, the details of each animal's anatomy deftly carved, the stone an icy white color flecked with dark russet towards the top
