Wyvern Dragon Stone Sculpture
The Wyvern is a legendary, mythical winged creature with a dragons head. It was often used in heraldry, on coats of arms, and was the symbol of the medieval kingdom of Wessex, in the West Country. This sculpture has been handcrafted in reconstituted stone, a material that has been used for centuries; its appearance is almost identical to that of quarried stone.
Specialist craftsmen have crafted this piece by hand to ensure that every sculpture is finished to a high standard. Reconstituted stone has been around for centuries but first became very popular in stately homes in the 16th century. In the 20th century the method of creating reconstituted stone improved, so it became possible to create sculptures that are even more durable and hard wearing.
