The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue
He is a formidable addition to my castle!
I bought my dragon to compliment the statue of King Arthur that I purchased from Toscano years ago and it could not look better! I live in a brick home built in 1921 and it is very castle-like with a fountain and wrought iron. King Arthur holds court in an ivy-covered corner and the dragon is directly in front of him in a bed of flowers. Above the King is "Skippy", the wall climbing gargoyle that I got from Toscano about 12 years ago. As you can tell from this correspondence, I am a fan. I also have the fish eating bear, the sumo wrestler, and the seven deadly sins not to mention the numerous gifts I have showered on others all courtesy of your fine establishment. Thanks and please, please NEVER go away!

Stay off the flowers!
That's what my Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat says. I read some of the other reviews about him falling apart/chipping. I've had him for over two months and he's stood through heat, sun, rain and multitudes of hail, and he hasn't broken/chipped yet. I don't know about the others that broke, but I'm also planning on bringing him in for the winter, to ensure his longevity. He is darker than pictured, but will probably change colors as he gets older. The design is outstanding and he makes a great impression on my small lawn. Yes, I recommend this product. I'd like to see a similar, larger one made also.

wonderful piece for the cost
This dragon actually looks better than the picture. Very detailed. Looks great outside or inside. Highly recommend if you are a lover of dragons.

Keeping the birds away, too
I really bought the Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue for the mantel above my fireplace, but I measured incorrectly, and he is too wide...So he's become the centerpiece in the bow window, keeping all creatures away. I had originally looked for a concrete dragon for the lawn, but couldn't find one, and someone recommended this site (designtoscano), and I'm glad they did... I don't think the construction material would be suitable for outdoors, because of the rather light weight, and the prevailing winds here. Dragons look better upright !
I have only one small complaint, and that concerns the styrofoam packing. It's really difficult to remove the sections of the dragon, without making a major mess.

I loved the design, but it's too small! I was looking for a larger garden sculpture. Sadly there are no large Dragon garden sculptures out there. Will probably have to commision a local artist to get what I want.

The dragon met all my expectations of quality and design. I bought the dragon for my son's house. I am now wanting one for my home. Highly recommend this item.
