Rated 5 out of 5 by bb928 Fantastic but Fragile!
Absolutely exquisite in design! Not a single detail has been overlooked. Every inch of the body, every scale, Beautiful. My all time favorite piece in my home and everyone that sees him has commented and complimented him, asked me where I purchased it, etc...
There are a couple of things that must be considered however.
If you purchase him, be sure to keep the packing styrofoam and box that he came in for any future moves, because although in person he looks like he's carved from stone and therefore very heavy, he isn't at all. He is very light and the resin material is actually somewhat delicate. Be careful not to drop anything on him or bump anything into him. I only bumped him with a box during my last move and he now has a hole in his wing in the back! I cried! Even cleaning him can chip off small bits of his dark finish leaving a very stark and obvious white spot, and believe me when I say that he can collect a lot of dust in all of those intricate, tiny places on his body. It can be covered quite easily with a bit of touch up "Sharpie", It sounds tacky but it works and no one has EVER noticed. Probably not a good choice if you have very young children or a clumsy husband. All things considered, I recommend the Subservient Dragon and Design Toscano 110%! If you appreciate dragons and their mythical majesty, this is the piece for you. I would buy him 1000 more times. In fact, I'm looking at the coffee table to purchase today.
