SFG: Dragon

Hand guard (Tsuba) from a Japanese sword depicting a dragon clutching a sacred pearl. The original 18th century sword hand guard that I used for reference is in the collection of The Walters Art Museum. Last weeks prompt from Sugar Frosted Goodness was Dragon. I started this earlier in the week, then things heated up and got busy. This evening, even though it’s a bit late, I just couldn’t resist finishing it up and posting it.


  1. This reminds me of a mouth guard (Uvula) from a traditional Beesknees dentist.

    All kidding aside, very nice indeed.

  2. Perhaps if I had had one of those mouth guards, my molar would not have succumbed to the dreaded gnashing bruxism curse. Then, alas, I would not be having a tiara bestowed upon said sad tooth next week.
