Achilleos Dragon Statue
This statue was inspired by a painting done in 1979 and originally an Anne McCarffrey book cover which quickly became a classic of its time. This large and magnificent dragon, perched upon his lofty position, is ever vigilant and ready to defend his amazonian rider’s territory against all invaders.
The figurine is expertly hand painted and made of resin sculpted from the art of Chris Achilleos, Iconia has produced a fantastic centrepiece of grand proportions and intricate detail for admirers of these mythical beasts. Standing at approx. 24″ (61cm) high from the base to the wing tip (with approx. 13″ (35cm) long wings), the whole sculpture is mounted on a polishable bronze resin base, and the spine of the dragon bristles are made with real metal spikes! If desired, the Amazon rider can be removed.
Each figurine comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity signed by Chris Achilleos and is presented in its own numbered colour display box. Intended as a Limited Edition of 1500, just 250 were actually produced, further adding to the exclusivity of this lovely piece.
