Dragon Sconce

This is a photo of a dragon sconce, which is located on the outside balcony area of the second floor of the historic building at the Heard Museum.

I like the detail of the ironwork.

The Heard Museum is a world-renowned museum of Native American arts and cultures. Anyone coming to Arizona should not miss this fabulous museum.

The tongue on this ironwork is quite delicate. I have never noticed this sconce before during my visits to the heard. I guess I was too focused on the Native American art to observe the fixtures of the building.

Interesting choice for a sconce. You could pass by it and not notice what it is.
