Dacian Draco by NicusorDumitru Dacian Draco by NicusorDumitru
I have finally managed to finish the cast of the Dacian draco! I've tried to give it a chryselephantine look, since the shiny plastic in which is cast looks so much like ivory. The gold is real gilded gold leaf, not paint.  The sculpture has about 22 cm in height and 30 cm in length.
The draco was the military standard of the ancient Dacians. It was represented as a dragon with wolf head and serpentine body. It was the probable origin of the modern Romanian balaur.
