  Winged dragon disappears from Nanaimo, B.C., perch NANAIMO, B.C. - A British Columbia artist built her dragon sculpture with wings, but she never thought it would leave its perch without her help. Heather Wall says she thinks Rock Dragon 2.0 disappeared from a park in Nanaimo, B.C., sometime late Friday. The spiky, aluminium dragon weighing about 35 kilograms was seated atop a rock and steel sphere and was mounted on a two-metre pole. Wall says the dragon was installed at Maffeo Sutton Park at the beginning of June and had been leased for a year by the City of Nanaimo.

Artist Heather Wall says in an email the dragon turned up in a library parking lot wrapped in brightly-coloured blankets on Friday afternoon.

Rock Dragon 2.0 was installed atop a rock and steel sphere mounted on a two-metre pole in the waterfront park in early June and Wall said it would have required a co-ordinated effort to get it down.

She estimated the value at between $12,000 and $15,000 and said it had been leased by the City of Nanaimo for one year.

Nanaimo RCMP spokesoman Const. Gary O'Brien says the sculpture did not appear to be damaged.

It's one of several pieces of art that have been reported stolen on Central Vancouver Island in recent weeks, including a 300-pound Chinese terracotta statue that went missing from a Lantzville yard on Tuesday.
