    Greatly recieved and adored by my 80 yr old friend

    Posted by Barbara on Jan 4th 2020

    My friend, quite an amazing, adventurous, octogenarian buddy. She collects dragons, but has never seen one like this, Love at first sight, promptly christened "Seraphina "! I was concerned that any copy would not meet the detail and standard of the photo. No need to worry, these are exquisite. I truly hope that all product legacies of Kerut Taram are and continue to honor him this way. I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW HAPPY SERAPHINA HAS MADE HER. Thank and bless you. BARBARA

    The tail lacks the detail that is shown in the advertised piece. Is otherwise as advertised.

    Welcome Change Hatching Chick? No Make It Dragon!

    Posted by Elizabeth on May 6th 2019

    I chose to purchase this "hatchling dragon" as a fun and funky Easter present for a friend who loves dragons. It is so atypical of all the chickens that one sees hatching out of an egg at this holiday. The wood carving is breathtaking in its minute details and my friend completely understood my motive for giving him this dragon at this time of year. Needless to say, he loved it and I was both pleased and proud to present it to him.

    This hatchling dragon is superb! I can hardly believe anything can be so finely carved. I do thank the artist! I keep her in a special place, but show her off to anyone who comes to visit.

    Surprise present!

    Posted by Ian on May 25th 2018

    Received the dragon as a present, so it was a very nice surprise. The wood carving is great, is a well done sculpture. And now the dragon sits in my desk, burning to ashes some of the paper work when not in the mood.
