Meet the Dragon

From the "Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Pacific and Asian Art Self-Guided Tour" by Catherine Bridges Tarleton: "Meet the dragon. Here is another energetic and flamboyant Thai piece, an eight-foot-long golden dragon mounted on decorated posts, for carrying in a parade. A gong once hung suspended from his tongue when he was originally created in the late 18th or early 19th Century."
