The Chinese dragon is a huge part of the identity and culture of China. The influence of dragons can be seen in art, music, literature, architecture and in the daily life of Chinese people. The origin of Chinese dragons is unknown, but the Chinese dragon certainly pre-dates written history.
Chinese mythology tells us the dragon is composed of nine animals, though there are differing opinions depending on the source we believe the following is a good general description of what a Chinese dragon is made of; a devils fiery eyes, a camels head, ears of an ox, deer's horns, serpents neck, eagle’s talons, tiger’s paws, frogs belly, carps scales and a long beard.
The Chinese dragon has very little in common with Western Dragons, which are often described as evil and creatures with violent tendencies. Chinese dragons are considered to be wise, beautiful and very auspicious. Chinese dragons are revered by Chinese people who will often refer to themselves as descendants of the dragon. The emperors of China and many other far east countries considered themselves to be dragons, and the people of China often believed that emperors could become dragons.
Everything relating to a Chinese Dragon is considered auspicious and in China the Year of the Dragon is a very good year in which to be born. Chinese people believe being born in the Year of the Dragon will bring you health, long life, and great success.
