Ancalagon the Black was the greatest dragon of Middle-earth, undoubtedly the largest, and is often referred to as the “father of the winged-drakes”. Like all other Urulóki, Ancalagon breathed fire, which was said to be hotter than any other known flame.
Ancalagon the Black was a dragon bred by Morgoth during the First Age of Middle-earth, as told in The Silmarillion. He was one of Morgoth’s most powerful servants, bred to be the greatest and mightiest of all dragons, and the first of the winged “fire-drakes”. He arose like a storm of wind and fire from the infernal pits of Angband beneath the Iron Mountains, as a last defense of the realm of Dor Daedeloth. Near the end of the War of Wrath that pitted Morgoth’s hosts against the Host of the Valar, Morgoth sent Ancalagon to lead a fleet of winged dragons from the fortress of Angband to destroy the Dark Lord’s enemies. So powerful was the assault of the dragon flight that the Host of the Valar was driven back from the gates of Angband onto the ashy plain of Anfauglith.
This is one of a kind sculpture, made with a great attention to each detail, as there is no detailed description about how Ancalagon looked like – an author had to use all of her imagination to bring that furious beast to life.
