The Weekend in Black and White


Dragon Box

Some time ago a friend sent me a lovely little trinket box with the Welsh Dragon inlaid in the lid in mother-of-pearl. The dragon's shape is just right, although he should properly be red, and he glows beautifully against the dark brown wood.


Many fine black and white photos can be found through the links on the Home Page.

Great shot!

Yes, indeed, a red dragon. But then the box would need to be green. And then you would have to hide it at the back of the wardrobe ...

Before reading your notes, I immediately thought the dragon was made of mother of pearl. It is a beautiful piece. It falls into my special category of “one of my treasures.” You friend certain has wonderful taste. A wonderful gift. I am running late with my commenting, but I am getting there slowly but surely. genie

Beautiful lighting! At first glance, I thought it's the natural light from the window. Have a great day!
