a child pointing the way for a dragon, which is perched on an open treasure chest

Sculpture is on Beach Drive, at Cedar Lane

I've heard many interpretations of this while I've been carving it. 

Some see Hiccup and Toothless from How to Train your Dragon, with the moral of brains over braun.

Some see Jackie Draper reunited with Puff the Magic Dragon, as if he rediscovered his childhood wonder.

Some see Bastian Bux of The Neverending Story riding his dragon.

Some see a little girl, some see a dwarf, some see an elf.  Some see a dinosaur.

Where are they pointing?
