Those of you following me on Instagram might already have seen it, but I thought I would share it with you here on my blog as well:
My little baby dragon, freshly hatched from its egg!!
I formed it with white clay and then applied a glaze that gives it this amazing metallic shimmer!
As you can see, my little one is quite hungry, begging for seconds all the time. 😉
Dragons are usually carnivores, but so far he’s happy lapping up some mango juice and gobbling down the occasional egg. 😉
I’ve always been a huge dragon fan, reading every story I could get my hands on, like my all-time favorite “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien (even thought Smaug is quite the Bad Boy really), the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling, the wonderful novels by Christopher Paolini (“Eragon” being the first in the series), “The Neverending Story” by Michael Ende, “Firelight” by Sophie Jordan, “Dragon Keeper” by Carole Wilkinson and last but not least “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin.
Most of the books I’ve just mentioned have also been adapted for the screen, showing us all kinds of dragons – magnificently fierce and wild ones like in “Harry Potter” and “Game of Thrones”, the light Chinese ones that don’t even need wings in order to fly because they weigh less than a cloud, or really cute ones like in “How to train your dragon”.
I for one love dragons with lots of shiny scales, fabulous wings, impressive claws and teeth!
Which kind of dragons do you like?
And would you like helping me to name this one? I only know that it’s a male, though don’t ask me how, I just know. 😀
