Benevolent Asian Dragon Statue
The dragon was better than expected and highly detailed, however, there appears to be a flaw with the mold when cast. The teeth and tongue on one side are flawed. The teeth on the "good side" come to a blunted point as expected but the teeth on the "bad side" are flattened and double in width. The tongue on the "bad side" is flawed and looks like material that was not removed after removing from the mold. It is likely, the same with the teeth as extra material was left. I have included photos so you can see what I mean. My wife is painting the dragon so the colors are different than the way the dragon was shipped. Other than the flaws in the mouth, we are pleased with our purchase, although it would have been terrific to have a "perfect" dragon. It was look fabulous in our garden.
