This Japanese-inspired Dragon sculpture is comprised of over 400 6 in. steel nails, hand-bent and welded with MIG and oxygen-acetylene systems. This piece is part of my handmade, steel nail sculpture series that includes a Phoenix, Minotaur, and a steampunk-inspired Cube Maze. (More photos of the series to come, I promise!)

My Japanese Dragon portfolio highlights the intricacy and meticulous attention to detail I applied from every angle. I hope it also conveys the hard work and high quality I’ve invested in creating it! Would love to know your thoughts and feedback in the comments below.

The sculpture stands approximately 13″ x 14″ x 24″, perfect to display on a tall pedestal or grand platform that needs a focal point. The steel base offers reliable support for the 12lb. Japanese Dragon.
