Supreme emperor of all mythical creatures, the dragon is depicted here in all its glory. Odyssey across Heaven and Earth portrays a dragon in motion, its sinuous coils twisting over a shining arc which is at once the base of the sculpture and an abstract representation of the sky above and the ground below. The dragon is thus traveling across heaven and earth. Most of the color is concentrated in the dragon's body, which is clearly separated from the polished arc. The slender, upraised tail of this crystal dragon figurine adds an additional element of difficulty to an already exacting design. The power and beauty of the dragon are symbols of strength and faith.
