Bottle - Golden Dragon in a Bottle
Date Added: 30 October 2017

The Junk "Golden Dragon" with three masts is sailing through the bay of Halong, Vietnam. Matthias Schultz has chosen this scenery, simply shaped of colored sealant, because he made his honeymoon to this destination. The hulk of the junk is divided into three parts to pass the bottle neck, the three masts followed separate. To fix them at the right position on the deck they were leaded each by two yarns, one at the bottom, one at the top, so that the total amount of yarns added up to 66 pieces. It took three times to handle this challenge. The bottle is carried by a Chinese dragon carved from wood, a Turk’s head decorates the neck. On the plug Schultz has written his family name in chines characters.
