An Astounding LEGO Aegis of an Aureate Aesthetic

I have a bit of a weakness for life-size recreations in LEGO form, so this beautiful green and gold shield by Peter Ilmrud most certainly caught my eye. The odd angles of the outer gold band are mesmerizing in this blocky medium, creating a non-standard yet fitting silhouette for the creation. And the stripes of sand and dark green composing the interior fill color, again set at an atypical angle, pair nicely with the pearl gold trim. But the 3-D dragon head at the center is the real all-star here. Utilizing both Technic and System pieces, the sculpture incorporates some notoriously-difficult-to-use pieces into the fierce visage. Any knight would surely think twice before attacking a knight wielding this beauty.
