Legendary Dragons Hand Painted on Gemstones

If you were born in the Year of the Dragon (like me), you are familiar with the various types such as water, wood, fire, earth and metal dragons. But sunrise and flower dragons may not ring a bell, unless you play online games DragonVale, Dragon Cave and Dragon City which present numerous winged creatures. There are a lot more dragons out there and a cult following for them. Artist Alvia Alcedo happens to be familiar with the new ones in existence, and has painted many on agate and jasper stones as shown here.
