The dragon represent a benevolent power who helps discovery and protects from adversaries and it is one of the grotesque motifs created by Raphael and his school when commissioned by the Pope to paint the Logge Vaticane. Sorry but pictures do not show the real beauty of the piece, the wonderful colors and the fine details. Trust me it is much nicer live! This, at the moment, is the only way to guarantee that it is really made in Italy and not somewhere else. My pieces, of course, are all hand signed under glaze by the artist.
