Carving of the Gold and Green Dragons Print
Monday, 23 July 2012 16:35

Step into to workshop of Mr. Alfred, the artist and smithy behind our last year's Golden Dragon trophies. In this year, just like last year, Mr. Alfred has agreed to exclusively produce our Golden Dragon trophies. These small 18 cm steel carved figures are inspired by the contours of the Wawel Dragon, which is located at the base of the Wawel Castle, and each dragon is cut by hand from steel sheets shaping each is a unique piece of art.

This year, in addition to our four Gold Dragons given to our Jack n' Jill and Strictly competition winners, he is carving us a fifth Green Dragon, given to winner of the unique choreography/teaching contest run by Lindy Hop Moves.

All the dragons, after being cut from the steel sheets will be filed and polished to a perfect shine. For the first time this year, finally they will be brushed over with transparent paint - thanks to which you will be able to see every cut and microsection that testifies to the artistry of their creation.

The question remains, who will bring home these pieces of art?
