Here be dragons…

I have always been attracted to dragons – even scary, fire-breathing, nasty / huge ones like the dragon guarding the gold in The Hobbit. And although I am definitely not an ‘ornament person’ I find it hard not to buy china or pottery ones when I see them, so how could I resist this article about an engraved ostrich egg which mentions dragons…

Fascinating and rather lovely.
