Congratulations, Greg !!

But you are challenging now very severily the other 30 participants !!!!  (Yes, we are now 31 participants registered for this project).  It will be very hard to be original and to demonstrate te same level .....

We should bring and consolidate for the event day, our works next year at each (European) exposition and show to see the diversification among us !

We shall try to designate a meeting table at each contest ..

This is just to convince that something can be done with this figure
Here is my interpretation

This is a Japanese dragon, with three fingers, and a samurai warrior (fantastic) upfront.  If I am right, they don't have wings in Japan, more looking as a snake.  Largest wings are found in European mythology (see Harry Potter, or Games of Thrones).


Thanks for your information Glen and feel sad old mythologies do not inspire our overseas colleagues as much as here in the old continent... perhaps because we identify more ourselves to our older traditions and myths here and they are more part of our heritage;

When reading the descriptions of dragons, however it is surprising that many countries have described dragons in their mythlogies since over more than 2000 years, even at times they did not know each other, which raises the question : are we sure they have really never existed ??  (I discover for example Hebrews, Hindous, Azteks ...) .... unless Adam met they at the origin .....


We are now 21 , one more in France ....

I'm going to pass as well. I noted the dragon seems to have been inspired by this illustration, but the samurai has been greatly simplified and turned to face the dragon. Looking at depictions of Asian dragons, I've also noted that they tend to be wingless and colorful. Have fun with it.
