In the sculptor's words...
Fafnir, Smaug, Vermathrax - all names of fearsome power and awesome terror. Scourge of virgins and avowed enemy of valiant heroes. St. George, Sigfried, Bilbo Baggins and many armchair warriors who have entered the magic realm through the printed page have faced the winged menace of the firebreathing worms of the dark kingdom. "Abduction" depicts the capture of a feisty but hopelessly outmatched princess by a firebreathing dragon.
This sculpture hangs by a wire connected at the top of the wing.
