How to Build a Chinese Dragon Head with a Nether Portal

This is ridiculously long image and text tutorial on building a Chinese Dragon head with a Nether Portal inside the mouth,  But if you follow it you should be able to build this Dragon in no time at all.  There is also a video tutorial on our YouTube:


The Blocks we used to build this Chinese Dragon are:

  • Polished Deepslate blocks, slabs and stairs.
  • Smooth Quartz blocks, slabs and stairs.
  • Polished Andesite blocks and slabs.
  • Red Wool Blocks, Black Wool Blocks  and Red Carpet.
  • Glowstones and Obsidian
  • and finally Diorite Walls for the teeth.


1. First, we have to build the Dragon’s bottom jaw.
