      Thanks for posting, DI - It looks to be 6 or 8 ft. across in both dimensions. Do you know the material and methods?

      Did a search on Simon O'Rourke and watched the time-lapse video of his carving a cheetah. Amazing!

              I'm really not sure of the wisdom of combining fire with a wood sculpture and then mounting it on a wood-framed building... but yes, it's pretty cool.

                      Just read an interesting fact about the owners and fire. Guy and Tracey are the owners. The most obvious challenge for this commission was how to make it breathe fire! In this case, Guy had a plan, and Simon’s role was to create a cavity within the sculpture for the propane pipe. If you saw the episode you will have heard Tracey joking about the dragon breathing fire when the doorbell rings. So, for the curious among you.. yes, it is really connected to the doorbell! However, Guy and Tracey wanted to make the fire breathing dragon as environmentally friendly as possible. For this reason, they limit his ‘bursts’ using their own control box – which also helps limit accident potential! Health and Safety matters!
