dragon mandala

A few years back I did a series of 4 smaller mandalas ona heavier paper. This is the one I kept for myself,,,which I refer to as a dragon mandala. As I was working on this drawing I kept imagining a craftsman in a time of knights and damsels and dragons who would create shields and art from pieces of dragons a knight would bring to him. This became more pronounced as i worked on the blue areas. I had the imagining that there is a correct way to scale a dragon and a magical order to the use of dragon. The piece is about 36"x36".
