How cute is this snoozing dragon? 🙂 I came across him (her?) last weekend while exploring my new neighbourhood. My plan was to get the ferry from Darling Point to Double Bay — an absurdly short 5-minute ride, but living on the harbour is a novelty and ferries have always been a treat, so why walk? I was delighted to find this wee dragon curled up beside a pond near the ferry wharf.
But, I was not sure the dragon, which is carved, qualified as a sculpture. All good, though: Subtractive sculpture involve removing material from a large piece to achieve a sculptural form. Woodcarving and stone carving are both examples of subtractive sculpture. (source)
