A Dragon Trophy

John Andrews's avatar John Andrews

I am internationally known for creating realistic dragon sculptures. This dragon trophy and the sword of it's demise symbolize the hunt within one's soul, conquering past demons. Realizing that forgiveness is the key to opening up life's abundance. I used only recycled materials for each sculpture, the Dragon Trophy has over 2100 hand cut meticulously welded scales and 86 hand crafted teeth that are nothing short of ferocious. The Dragon Slayer sword has a unique solid core glass center piece and the jagged edges of the blade give the appearance of many years at battle. This year I am supporting a local small business on the West Side, The Mitten Brewing Co. as my venue! I am excited to participate at ArtPrize for a 3rd year and I am inviting the people of Grand Rapids and this years Jurors, to venture outside of downtown and enjoy the West Side experience of ArtPrize 2014!
