The dragon is a mythical creature that has existed within man’s imagination throughout many places and time periods. In the East, despite a ferocious demeanor, the dragon is considered an auspicious, even benevolent creature. Associated with winds, mist, clouds, and fire, the dragon embodies the constant renewal of the universe and the mystical cycle of creation.
