The stone dragon


The dragon, a mythical creature with strong connotations of the chinese culture. This creature is often associated with the ancient emperor, as they always referred themselves to the dragon, son of the heaven. The dragon is also associated with water and is believed to be able to bring rain. It's representations can be found in all forms of art, from stone carvings (what you see here), sculptures, emblems, portraits etc.
