Dragon Sculptures

Chinese dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and Chinese folklore. In Chinese art, dragons are typically portrayed as long, scaled, serpentine creatures with four legs. In Yin and Yang terminology, a dragon is Yang and complements a Yin fenghuang ("Chinese phoenix").




Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize

  • potent and auspicious powers,
  • particularly control over water,
  • rainfall,
  • hurricane, and
  • floods.

The dragon is also a symbol of

  • power,
  • strength, and
  • good luck for people who are worthy of it.


With this, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power and strength.



In Chinese daily language, excellent and outstanding people are compared to a dragon, while incapable people with no achievements are compared with other, disesteemed creatures, such as a worm. A number of Chinese proverbs and idioms feature references to a dragon, for example: "Hoping one's son will become a dragon".


The Chinese Dragon also brings good luck for a good Feng Shui.
