The Benevolent Dragon

Sharon Vance's avatar Sharon Vance

The Benevolent Dragon, a symbol of goodwill and harmony whose origins stem from ancient Chinese mythology . While European culture tends to view the dragon as a symbol of power and aggressiveness, perhaps the Benevolent Dragon is here to remind humanity that outward appearance is not always a true indicator of the beauty of the inner soul. This bas-releif mosaic was created using over 200,000 LEGO pieces and was built entirely free-hand (no computer pixilation), it took over 9 months to create.
