Sturdy, build like badass, this frilled dragon is Blue.


He is a guardian standing proudly outdoors of a North Queensland tropical residence.


Blue lives surrounded by nature, with grass under his feet, next to a shed with Harley Davidson’s, and in company with his badass friend Tank, the Great Sea Turtle (one of Barefooted Welder’s scrap metal art sculptures).


To the artist, it represents Australia and progression in personal achievement. When blue was received by his owner, she was blown away. His blue eyes, velociraptor look made her keep the original name. 

“Blue stands proud and looks over his street.” MickyD
