exquisite sculpture of an ancient Chinese Dragon
from a miniature in a temple in China. The dragon
in the Chinese culture has several metaphors depending
on certain elements; this particular pose implies
and grace. The scale of the piece, 8’ (L) x 2
_’ (W) x 3’ (H) is just as impressive as
the accomplished detail. Clifford Frederick’s
is now offering this piece as a limited edition.
There is an interesting history behind this dragon.
The artist’s grandfather had purchased an antique
bronze miniature of the dragon over fifty years ago,
keeping it in a place of honor at his home. The artist
and the grandfather shared the awe in the workmanship
of this dragon. Knowing the appreciation that his grandson
had for the dragon, the elderly grandfather gave Clifford
Frederick the miniature as a gift. The original miniature
now resides on the artist’s hearth.
This amazing creature was hand sculpted out of clay. The dragon’s astonishing
detail will leave you speechless. Each one of the thousands of scales were
carefully applied one at a time.
