Dragons are wildly popular and this ferocious fellow is guarding a lighthouse. As always, the wonderful thing about dragons is that the options for colors are endless. Why not get really creative and paint this piece to match the colors in a particular room in your house. Park him near a lamp for added effect after dark. Go with glitter or metallic paints, or make him red to match a lighthouse.
