The Dragon

The dragon has been a symbol in many cultures around the globe for thousands of years, but is most popular in China. To the Chinese, dragons are associated with the power of transformation; the search for wisdom, happiness and immortality. They symbolize balanced growth in spirit and are bringers of eternal change.
