Description: Garri Dadyan, born in Baku, Azerbaijan, was named a National Master Artist of the Soviet Union in 1985 for his unparalleled mastery of repousse metal work. In 1993 he became a member of the UNESCO International Federation of Artists in recognition of his superior artistry. A master metal worker, Mr. Dadyan employs the techniques of chasing, repousse, filigree and granulation, wax casting, engraving and niello with equal virtuosity. Working in solid sterling silver with precious stones, Garri brings old world mastery to the new world that few can emulate.
Silver Dragon is a gorgeous example of the fine craftsmanship of this maker. The multi-bar mosaic damascus blade was forged from carbon steels. It shows tremendous detail with virtually no distortion. The cutting edge and spine are twisted Ws pattern.
The handle is hand fluted deer antler. The quillion guard and pommel are both painstakingly sculpted from solid sterling silver. 115 grams of silver were used to create the pommel and quillion guard. Between the guard and the pommel, Dadyan set many faceted natural gem stones: 4-2mm diamonds, 4-1.5mm sapphires, 1-9mm green amethyst, 16-4mm garnets, 2-3mm topaz, 1-6mm pearl, and 2-4.5mm citrine. The handle abd quillion are completed with detailed dragon’s heads. The dragon's scales and horns are meticulously carved into the silver.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout! This piece truly deserves to be seen to be fully appreciated.
