The Significance Of The Dragon In Asian Culture
The creature called Long (Dragon) is loved and revered in Chinese culture. There, the dragon is considered to be the personification of the positive energy of Yang and the heavenly powers. Much like any other serpents, the dragon is associated with water (supposedly, it lives in oceans, lakes, and rivers). Therefore, its images are often drawn on the beams of bridges, wells, and roof ridges.
Here is how old treatises describe these magical flying creatures: “The head of a camel, deer horns, eyes of a demon, 81 or 117 sparkling carp-like scales, eagle claws, and tiger paws.” They also have a magnificent mane and a large bulge at the back of their head. It is thanks to this bulge, they can fly because Eastern dragons, unlike their brothers from the Western world, simply have no wings.
According to the ancient scholar Wang Chun, there are 9 types of dragons who submit to four kings. Apart from that, there are also mythical animals that are incarnations of natural elements. They guard deposits of precious metals and gems, cause earthquakes, hurricanes and, floods, as well as control the weather. Creatures that live longer than a thousand years learn how to take on the appearance of a man.
In China, the dragon is a symbol of the country and nation. Images of dragons adorn imperial thrones and clothes. They were sacred and inviolable — if a commoner touched an item featuring the symbol of the dragon, he would face the death penalty. For some time, people even believed that a true king should have a mole shaped like a dragon!
To honor the Long, every year people of the Celestial Empire held lush celebrations including costume processions, festivals, and boat races. People put on vibrant outfits and hid their faces behind colorful masks. They performed a dance that was supposed to scare away evil spirits and attract good luck.
