Description

This papier-mâché dragon figurine has wheels. The dragon is painted green with black and gold scale designs down the back of the head and up the tail. Its face has light orange nostrils, a light orange mouth, white eyes outlined in black, and black detailing. There are two gold horns sprouting from the top of the dragon's head. A light orange strip is painted from the chin down the front of the dragon to represent the belly. The belly has three dark orange and three gold horizontal stripes. The wooden wheels are attached by dowel and are painted with blue swirl.
