The body of the dragon is the only piece that's actually a gourd. The wings are cheesecloth over a wire form, infused with Powertex, and the base (the mountain/rock area) is cotton infused with Powertex. The rider is made out of clay and I've opted not to place reins on the dragon as it takes away from his fierce look.
