From an original pen & ink on illustration board by Susan Wickersham.
Reading "Bullfinch's Mythology" at the age of eight sparked a keen interest in myths of other cultures within Susan. From the cold climes of Norway to the enigma of Oriental myths, all of them include stories of Dragons. Though these fabled beasts may vary in color, size and temperment, Dragons have been attributed with an influence on the physical and metaphysical world, sometimes for good, sometimes for evil. Our Snow Dragon symbolizes the change in seasons and is an agent for good.
