Artist Jim Kay shows the Hungarian Horntail in its full fire-breathing glory in this unfinished painting for the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

The scene shows a defensive female Horntail guarding a golden egg. Harry was tasked with snatching this egg in the first challenge of the Triwizard Tournament.
