This piece is based off of a welsh myth relating to King Vortigern and Merlin. In the Myth, King Vortigern wants to build a castle on the hill Dinas Emrys - but every night the hill shakes, and the walls crumble. His advisers tell him to sacrifice a fatherless boy to stop the shaking, and so one is found and brought to them. However, the boy (who is in fact Melin) tells Vortigern to open up the hill - which he does to find two dragons sleeping at the bottom of an underground lake. They wake and battle one another, with the Red Dragon eventually defeating the white.
The piece was created for a competition at a local gallery - i apologise for the glare, as this photo was taken after the piece was hung within its frame, so while i've tried to edit out the worst of the glare, some still remains
