this is my greatest creation evah! he's a rock dragon! a bunch of rocks, all put together with superglue. he broke once, but i rebuilt, and most of the pieces were large enough that he looks pretty much the same as the original. the rocks are lanscaping gravel, half an inch to an inch each, i didnt count how many i used. he is completely free-standing, fits in the palm of your hand, so maybe six-seven inches.. he's made of rocks! come on this is cool!!
