In Eastern culture, the dragon is a revered and mystical creature often depicted in art and sculpture. However, few historical artworks have truly captured the essence of the dragon as a symbol of power, authority, and honor. It takes an exceptional artist to create a dragon sculpture that exudes the grandeur and awe-inspiring presence the creature deserves.

Enter Milan Sipek, a Czech crystal artist, who collaborates with the world's premier practitioners of the hand-blown crystal technique. His masterpiece, "The Crystal Dragon," perfectly embodies the majesty of the dragon in a medium that is as beautiful as it is challenging to work with.

Hand-blown Czech crystal is a national treasure, known for its clarity, high refraction, and brightness. The process involves heating the crystal to a liquid state at a scorching 1300 degrees Celsius and shaping it within a matter of minutes. Any longer and the crystal will crack due to cooling. The time and temperature constraints make hand-blown crystal a demanding medium, requiring precise and flawless execution in the creation of large-scale sculptures.
