Welcome! Thanks for sharing your work. I do like dragons a lot.



Thanks Don,

Im glad to you like the dragons a lot.

In China,


"中华民族的图腾——龙 中国历史上的各个朝代,帝王也称呼自己为“真龙天子”,龙也具有权力的象征。 中国文化中,龙有着重要的地位和影响。从距今7000多年的新石器时代,先民们对原始龙的图腾崇拜,到今天人"


the dragons are the Totem and Worship of the chinese nation, in the past varied Chinese ancient dynasties, the ancient emperors always declared that they were the real dragons, the sons of God, it is the A symbol of power. Dragon holds an important position in Chinese culture, and it played an important role in the history of China. the worship of dragons never changed from the Chinese ruins of the Neolithic age over 7,000 years ago, untill now.


Some of my friends from In western countries, say dragon may means fierce and unpleasant. But not in China, hahaaaaaaaaa
