I posted some pictures last night from a visit to Paris in the Summer of 2007. Several people were quite taken with the dragon sculpture, which was made of recycled materials.
The first of these prompted the flying mum to ask: “…why does the dragon have a big ball of fluff for a face?”
Ah. An excellent question. It was actually just my angle for that shot, which didn’t do the dragon’s face justice. In the sense that it didn’t actually show that the dragon had a face. But it did. Have a face, that is. The “big ball of fluff” was the dragon’s fire and smoke breath, made of plastic bags.
Here are a few more photos, some of which show the dragon’s face:
There’s also a nice shot of the dragon over at a post called A sunny afternoon in Paris at the “Jardin des Plantes”, which has some more photos of and info about the botanical gardens.
