    What a great gift of good wishes!

    This dragon statue and companion book are a jewel! I just got this and put it next to the front door as a symbol of protection. The book has something for everyone: history, facts, and philosophy. The quotes are my favorite: who couldn't use a little inspiration to have strength, wisdom, and attract fortune? The dragon statue has beautiful detail, and the "gist" of its meaning is stamped on the bottom, so I can turn it over anytime I need to be reminded and inspired.

    Don't let the sticker price fool you- the quality and detail of the statue and the writing in the book exceeded my expectations by a mile. This is a gift of good wishes to friends and family, appropriate for many occasions, and I highly recommend it!

    I love this!

    The dragon is really pretty and I love this statue. I put it in the corner of the window in our living room, where the sun comes in. The book has great details and is written in a way that's fun to read and it came with a bookmark too which is a nice touch.

    Nicely done!

    I got this lovely chinese dragon statuette from my sister, (she knows that I'm a committed collector). It came in a really nice keepsake box and the book has a lot of information about dragons legends and history that I didn't know. It's got a nice little bookmark too. It's a great addition to my collection.
