Japanesque Sea Monster by ou8nrtist2 Japanesque Sea Monster by ou8nrtist2
Welded steel-wingspan 5 ft.
The coloration was accomplished with torch in one hand and spray bottle of water in the other,heating and quenching in a trial and error manner until the appropriate pattern and colors were achieved. Then a coat of lacquer to "fix" the colors. They fade over time anyway but the lacquer slows the process considerably.
This was a site specific commission meant to be a guardian figure over an archway at the top of wide stairs entering a large house...

I have used this sculpture in a fantasy photo manipulation:

Thank you.
As mentioned in the artist's comments,this is a guardian figure installed at the top of a broad stairway over a large entrance way.It felt very much like entering a Viking Long hall and the house is decorated with the most eclectic collection of Japanese and Celtic artifacts,so I sort of split the difference with my design of the dragon...

Sounds like a wonderful collection and a nice piece for the entry way for sure.
