Saturday Superdragons

Today’s dragons are in John Frost Square, a rather unattractive 1960s square where the library and museum are.  John Frost was a Chartist hero.

Pit Dragon Dai Newport

This dragon is called Pit Dragon Dai and is a miner to celebrate the coal mining history of the Welsh Valleys.  The artists are Beth Downing and Valerie Harding.

The City Superdragon Newport

This one is called The City and the artist is Amelia Thomas.   Not sure if you’ll be able to see it properly on this photo but it has a funky cityscape painted on it.

The Council also installed these spherical fountains in the square.  I do like the reflections you get!

    Love these! In Vermont they do the same thing with cows, in Arizona with ponies.

      How fun! And apparently there are rhinos in Chester, hippos in Rutland and lions in Bath according to the Superdragons Facebook page! It’s all this Wild in Art stuff.
