Dragon Sculpture by theforgery Dragon Sculpture by theforgery
A large metal dragon sculpture, measuring approximately 8ft from the ground to the highest wing tip and with an 8ft wingspan. Hammmered steel plate over a steel framework, with copper tubing running from beneath the tail tip, through the body, to the tip of the tongue. This allows the dragon to breathe both fire and water/steam, as seen in the top right photo.
The dragon is mounted on a tudor oak beam that is over 400 years old.

The suggester said: "Metal smithing on such a massive scale is incredibly hard work. I can't imagine how difficult this was to make Dragon Sculpture by ~theforgery, especially given that it doesn't have a solid metal base to go with it." ( Suggested by crazed-fangirl and Featured by MyntKat )

Do you sell the things you make? I can understand if you don't. It takes a long time and the longer it takes for some people the harder it is to let it go. I can also understand charging an arm and a leg for them. Anyways, my wife wanted to know how much you'd charge for something like this if you did sell it.
