A favorite perk of living in England was access to some of the greatest landmarks on earth. One such treasure was a mere 20-minute train ride away. Kew Gardens in Richmond is home to the Great Pagoda
Atop its magnificent roof once stood 80 fierce wooden dragons that were removed, but not forgotten, in a 1761 renovation. Now they are being lovingly recreated by the magic of 3D scanning, reverse engineering and 3D printing - hopefully before our next "trip across the pond."
