There She Grows!

Like the great watery beasts of fictional lore, this land-bound beast brings the fantasy to life. Chris Crooks' extravagant, three-part denizen of the deep adds a dramatic statement to green spaces as he leaps energetically through waves of grass and inspires uproarious reactions from all who cross his path. Crooks crafts each giant from monstrous pieces of hand-cut metal that are aged with a bright rust patina. He then bends and shapes the tentacles, scales and other dragon-like details, giving the piece added ferocity and dimensionality. Steel segments affixed with mounting brackets that hold two, 6" stakes (six stakes included). Handmade in Arizona.

“I started out from my garage. As the business grew, and my wife’s and neighbors' patience stretched, it was time to move to an industrial space. There I can bang and grind at all hours of the night. It's 1,000 square feet of pure metalworking nirvana.”

Chris Crooks took a winding road to get to where he is now—creating imaginative lawn sculptures inspired by the Southwest landscape he calls home. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Chris worked in advertising, then ran a printing business with his wife, while painting during his free time. It was when the couple moved to Tucson that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. He now designs and creates sculptures in his studio at the foot of the Santa Rita Mountains. "I always wanted to make a living doing something genuinely enjoyable," he says. "To get up in the morning raring to go, and never having enough time to do everything you want to do."

Smaller than I thought, but I love it!

I planned to put it by the tortoise's tunnel, it is so striking it went by the big fountain instead, where it can be seen better.

Everyone needs a Sea Serpent

I saw an amazing Sea Dragon at the Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, CA. The one there was $24,000 and was already sold but donated back to the Botanical Gardens. Since I don't have that kind of cash for yard art, and was looking for something fun for Mother's Day, this was the perfect gift!

Not exactly what I pictured

Sculpture smaller than I had pictured. Probably meant more for a small area or garden. Have painted/weather proofed with a copper finish. Placing in back yard on Indian River (Intercoastal).

Very nicely done

There are 2 other dragon garden sculptures in my neighborhood. So we wanted to carry on this theme. This was the best one we found online. Couldn't be more pleased. Well made and cleverly designed.

Love this!

My Christmas gift to myself. My late husband was a metal artist so I'm quite particular when it comes to buying this type of art. I found it just as expected from the picture and felt it was at a great price. My grandkids thought it was awesome. We've got a few feet of snow on the ground so can't plant it in sol yet, but the anchoring spikes it comes with are impressive.

Love him, going on 3 years now

Serpie has been a resident of our back yard now for 3 years. He has tolerated the Colorado summers and winters well. He moves around in the garden depending on the flora season. Just ordered the shark and the octopus. If only he could scare the deer away!
