Dragon Cropped

‘The Dragon’ is intended to be a monumental steel drawing in space; the symbol of Welsh pride, through which (though not obscured by) the Castle ruins can be seen. A lasting, imposing trace of the weight of history. My desire is that they balance, and acknowledge that this is a nation for all its citizens.

‘The Dragon’ would be constructed by Flintshire steel companies. The image below gives an idea of the possible scale:
