Doug the Troll

Doug grew up in northern Norway, the birthplace of trolls and a land of long, cold & dark nights.To be a troll, one must hate practically everything. Indeed, Doug hated his homeland so much that one day, clutching his favorite club, he headed south to find another land to roam and whose inhabitants he could annoy. Unfortunately for Doug he had forgotten that the further south he headed, the longer it stayed light and when caught in sunlight, trolls have a tendency to turn to stone. Here we see Doug, frozen in grimace with favorite club in hand.

Maternal Dragon

The dragon, a fabulous monster common to many mythologies, was usually conceived as a huge, bat-winged, fire-breathing creature with a barbed tail. The word dragon is derived from the Greek drakon, which was used originally for any large serpent. With the advent of Christianity, dragons came to be symbolic of sin and paganism and the slaying of a dragon was the crowning achievement of the heroes of the ancients. However, our beautifully detailed sculpture by Travis Bond remains a beneficent creature, capturing the bond between mother and child, and eschews the traditional view of the dragon as an agent of evil.

Nostradamus

Since his startling predictions began to come true, Nostradamus has held a place as one of the great clairvoyants.  Now, in David Blight’s rendition of the 15th century astrologer, we find him crystal gazing into a crystal, pondering the mysteries it holds.   If he were still alive, would he have predicted his place as a beautiful garden or home ornament?

Peek-A-Boo, the Shy Dragon

Peek-a-boo was not your normal dragon. He always knew he didn’t really want to be a dragon, but he didn’t know what kind of other creature he wanted to be. As he grew older he became more awkward and shy. Here he is hiding under his wing after discovering he can make fire and flame. Of course, being Peek-a-boo he burned himself and now the poor little fellow may never come out from his place of refuge.

Serendor

Written some time before the 10th century, a manuscript tells the epic tale of Beowulf, an ancient warrior king. One of the king’s servants had chanced upon a dragon’s lair laden with treasure. In an attempt to please his master, the servant stole a golden goblet. Enraged, the dragon took his terrible vengeance on the villages in the kingdom. Beowulf trekked to the lair and fought the dragon in a horrible deathly duel that the king lost. Wiglaf slew the dragon and assumed the throne. Perhaps Serendor was that dragon.

Sir Dugless of Canalot

SIR DUGLESS OF CANALOT – KNIGHT OF THE GROUND TABLE

Out of the grass castle, the Knights of the Ground Table emerge to do battle with their toughest foe: the gardening chore. Unflinching are they as they traipse through the labyrinths of the tangled garden in their noble quest to rid the land of those pesky weeds. Armed with various gardening implements: a watering can and hose for protection, a spade and trowel for battle, Sir Dugless is ready for action. Unfortunately the noble lord is suffering from a life lived full; his taste for the finest foods, ales and wines has left him not as agile as he once was. His watering can squeaks a little, his shield made from hose is a bit limp and he doesn’t slip into his chain-link like he used to!

Waking Dragon

Beyond the Maze, deep within the caverns, and wallowing in the mire, lay the gentle beast of Mythology.

In centuries past, his Crest proudly blazed on King Arthur’s battle helmet, now he waits patiently, for time to restore his rightful place amongst the Celts, when he once again will represent the emblem of Sovereignty. If you listen carefully you will hear the slow, rhythmic beating heart of the Waking Dragon.
