Captured is a mythical beast with a sufferable expression that seems to resemble that of wasted potential.
The wood has been cut and painted and re-cut and re-painted many times because its been used and re-used in various projects, ever before it ended up here. At some point the bits get smaller and smaller and, when saved in quantity, provide new life to a new idea.
Presented is a dragon’s head, severed from its body, with two arrows pertruding its red-open neck. The anguish in its eyes stems from the what he’s made of; broken materials found outside, used and disposed of in a casual fashion.
