Azure Dragon LG
Size: H32.5cm including base x 29.5cm x 17cm
Xu Xiao Yong presents the Azure Dragon in all its grace, power and magnificence. Guardian of the east, representing spring, dawn, and the element of wood, the dragon’s handsome size shows off the virtuoso modeling that gives the sculpture its profound sense of vitality.
With the luxuriously gilded pearl of wisdom in its grasp, the writhing dragon steps lightly on the celestial vault, subduing chaos as it casts its protective gaze over the cosmos. In fine pewter, on a base of polished Nero Marquina marble.
Caring for stone
Wipe down the surface with mild soap and water using a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid the use of vinegar, bleach, or glass cleaners; the acid content will dull the surface. Similarly, avoid using scouring pads and abrasive cream cleaners.
