Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Dragon Posing As Rodin's 'The Thinker'
Product Number: 004-653-3692
Across multiple cultures and mythologies, the dragon has long been associated with wisdom, intelligence, and longevity, often engaging in games of riddles or other intellectual feats with humans. Here we find a similar representation, illustrating the winged serpent in a stance not unlike that of Rodin's The Thinker. Whether he's contemplating how to organize his horde or simply wondering what to eat for lunch, I'm not sure I want to witness the outcome. Needless to say, it's a good thing the flame's in your hands, this time.
