About the design:

This is my first, and possibly only, close-up design of a dragon’s head. There was only one to start with, but someone (I think it was Shari) suggested I should do a set in reverse colors, so here they are.

Copper, of course is a warm, orangey colored metal. Verdigris is the greenish copper carbonate or copper chloride that coats the metal when exposed to the elements. It can be seen on the trim and roofs of many buildings, and most famously, on the Statue of Liberty in New York harbor.
