Dragon bridge in Ljubljana

Sculpture at the dragon bridge in Ljubljana, Slovenia

This dragon was one of four I saw at the dragon bridge (Zmajski most) in Ljubljana. The bridge finished in the beginning of the 20th century shows some elements of the Viennese Secession. The dragons were produced in Vienna (Factory A. M. Beschorner).
