This book contains an over-the-shoulder look at an artist at work. Jose de Braga is an award winning artist, whose carving has been featured in movies, books, and magazines.

Chapters cover evolving the design and carving the dragon head, the human figures, structures, plants, and the various metal fittings. The book also includes biographies of the craftsmen who contributed to the project and an appendix with information on tools and supplies.
