Several more Superdragons


 ridgeway dragons, Newport

These two are up on the top of Ridgeway, where I often walk.  What a glorious view they have!  The one in front is called Goldie Lookin’ Dragon by Caroline Smith – there is a pop group from Newport called Goldie Lookin’ Chain….  The one behind is Newport’s Great Outdoors by Ella Edwards.  Here’s a better photo of it:

Sadly, this one had gone in for repairs between one walk at 7.30pm on Wednesday and about the same time yesterday.  So many of them are falling prey to the mindless vandalism that they are considering putting them all inside safe and sound.  Such a pity:(

Elvis lookalike dragon!

There are three dragons in the Riverfront Arts Centre.  This one is Elvis!  Can you see the resemblance?!  The artist is Brian D Hanlon.

City Scaler superdragon

This one is City Scaler by Lauren Fowler.

Cyn Ac Ar Ol superdragon

And this one is right by it – it is called Cyn Ac Ar Ol by Tim Hobbis, and I’m sorry but my Welsh isn’t up to telling you what that is about

Here they both are standing together.

Tell me if you get fed up with dragons and I’ll revert to my usual reeds, sketchbooks and ramblings…

    I love the dragons. In Vermont it’s cows, and they are having the same problems with vandalism, which is such a shame.

    Love the dragons! According to Google ‘Cyn Ac Ar Ol’

    is ‘Before and After’ – but maybe a Welsh speaker would have a different opinion.

    Cymru am byth – which is the extent of my Welsh.
