The restoration element of the Tsarskoselskaya amber workshop received an element of the Dragon Bridge decor from Alexandrovsky Park - a cast-iron dragon sculpture. At the end of the XVIII century, this bridge, designed by Charles Cameron, was called the bridge "with monstrous figures."

Initially, during the construction of the bridge in the reign of Empress Catherine II, the bridge was decorated not with dragons, but with gypsum griffins. The bridge became known as Drakonov only in the middle of the 19th century, when the decaying figures of gypsum griffins were replaced by cast-iron sculptures of Chinese winged dragons mounted on granite pedestals. The cast-iron dragons were cast in 1860 at the Moran factory according to the models of the sculptor I. Schwartz.

Today, experts from the Tsarskoselskaya amber workshop dismantled one cast-iron dragon from the Dragon Bridge pedestal for restoration work on a destructed fragment of sculpture.
