I came upon a dragon

My daughter Gwen and I took a walk last year and passed this house with a dragon in the
front yard....yes.... you read me correct.   I didn't have my camera with me at the time . ..for weeks  I tried to find it again but couldn't..I thought they took it away.  But this year while going to a garage sale I found it again and I had my camera.

              Dragons are legendary creatures

                Dragons were perceived as powerful, protective, and fearsome, and they were valued for their warlike qualities. They were often protectors of a treasure, and from this they can be symbolic of a most valiant defender. They were also sometimes terrorizers of the people, symbols of satanic evil. One of the highest achievements of a hero in medieval legend was the slaying of a dragon, as in the story of St. George, where the victory over the dragon, was a symbolic victory of Christianity. Thus the dragon as a heraldic charge may signify the faith, strength and selfless courage needed to battle the overwhelmingly powerful.
                I was in awe when I seen it.  I wonder who lives lives..and why the dragon?
