Chinese Dragon Print

Chinese Dragon print

Legendary creatures in Chinese and Japanese mythology and folklore. Chinese dragons are typically portrayed as long, scaled, serpentine creatures with four legs. In contrast to European dragons that are considered evil, Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, and floods. Originally from a colored engraving made in the 1800s.
