“Sometimes things just happen in a strange way. Firstly, many people asked if the little dragon from ‘Ex Libris’ could be cast separately as a small sculpture. He became Rex Libris.” – Michael Parkes
Lake Tahoe is the perfect destination for skiers and adventure lovers to experience the best of the great outdoors. While you’re here, come by the Marcus Ashley Gallery in Heavenly Village to view the various collections on display, including Michael Parkes art. The artist’s work is a testament to his brilliant eye for detail and meticulous approach.
For Dragon Dragon, the sculptor captures the classic stout creature that first appeared in his painting, Ex Libris. Parkes accurately captures the subject’s form to amplify the dragon’s powerful yet gentle features.
In this sculpture, the dragon has his arms wrapped around his shoulders as he tries to contain his excitement. A pretty dragonfly lingers on his snout as its wings beat to the rhythm of the dragon’s heartbeat. Unlike legendary ferocious dragons that often occupy lore imagery, Parkes’s version of the creature is endearing.
Place this lovely sculpture in any corner of a room to infuse it with an inviting, warm vibe.
