Two Chinese dragons oppose each other in this magnificent work of Asian art. The dragon is one of the most enduring icons of the Chinese culture and is often viewed as the most powerful of all creatures. It is common in Chinese art for two dragons to oppose each other with a fiery pearl in between them. The pearl is said to represent wisdom. The dragons in this wall fan are painted a striking red gold and blue making them really stand out against the black background of the fan. A bit of smoke and clouds can be seen emanating from the dragons throughout the fan. The red color used in the body of the dragons make them appear on fire. This would fit with the ideal of the dragon who in Chinese myth was said to control fire air and water. For this reason the Emperors of China often used the dragon as a symbol for their imperial might as the dragon was synonymous with strength and power. Even to this day in China people who excel in their fields are often compared to dragons. Today the dragon’s powers have expanded to an almost unlimited number of supernatural powers. It can hide in water fly among the clouds change the weather change the color of its body or glow in the dark. As the dragon’s popularity has increased throughout time so has the mythical powers associated with it. Maybe this is why the Chinese dragon has been the feature of stories clothing art movies kung fu moves festivals and many many tattoos. Clearly the dragon’s impact upon the Chinese and Asian community has been huge. The latter part of the 20th century saw the dragon grow immensely in popularity around the world. Today almost everyone recognizes the Chinese dragon even if it is just a vague idea that it is associated with power and might. This spectacular Chinese wall fan honors the dragon and is a beautiful work of art as well. Hand-painted and handcrafted it is certain to impact any wall it is mounted on.
