MotherDragon

The dragon does not challenge you—she is more certain of her strength than that—she warns you to stay away. And the reason for this defiance is because the egg in the nest is just hatching.

The MotherDragon is made of elk antler with each scale individually carved. The flares around the legs, elbows and wrists, and the ridge along the back are made from moose antler and based upon ancient pictures of  Chinese dragons. The dragon perches on a tree made of elk and deer antler, with tufts of needles made of green wire. Nestled in the crook of one branch is a dragon hatchling made of elk antler. The hatchling can be taken out for handling.
