Dragon sawdust statues

All these sawdust statues have been beautifully handmade using a mixture of waste sawdust and latex.  Each piece formed and painted by hand, so some variation may occur although the quality is consistently beautiful.  Their sale provides a vital source of income to the small family groups who make them in North Thailand.   Genuine BAFTS - recognised Fair Trade products

Colours

Boxed. Approx 36cm high. Each one is uniquely handmade so some variation may ocur.
This amazing sculpture is made by hand from a mixture of latex and sawdust. Beautifully finished by skilled craftspeople who are properly rewarded by the Fair Trade company who supply this.
As the incense - cone or stick - burns inside the bamboo tube, the smoke escapes from the dragon's mouth in a very pleasing & realistic manner.
As a nice little touch we will throw in FREE OF CHARGE for UK & EU customers a pack of incense (decent quality* such as Nag Champa)
I have been working in the weird & wonderful ethnic crafts and incense field for over 20 years and this is the best incense burner I have seen. Genuinely recommended. 
Price 25.00


We used to stock these dragon burners with wings - now discontinued, but the photo below nicely shows the smoke drifting from the mouth ...
