Chinese mythology states that the dragon could turn into a human being a bird or an animal but it always retained its dragon nature. Besides its amazing strength the dragon has always been associated with great wisdom. The pearl of wisdom can be seen in this fan between the two dragons. It was common for Chinese artists to portray two dragons facing each other contesting the pearl of wisdom. The dragon was also associated with the weather and revered for its ability to cause torrential rain or bouts of dryness. During the dry season Chinese legend states that the dragon was hibernating. When looking at the span of a dragon’s life one lifetime could equate to numerous Chinese dynasties. For example the dragon was said to have taken 1500 years to mature to full size. For all of these reasons the Emperors of China took the dragon on as their national symbol or emblem. The Emperor himself was said to have dragon blood in his veins making him more powerful than any other man or woman on the planet. All of the Emperor’s possessions were given names with dragons as well. And only the royal dragon could be portrayed–whether painted embroidered or in a statue–with five claws. All other dragons could only have three or four claws. Today the dragon is embraced by people all over the world and the mythology of the dragon lives on in stories movies songs and video games. This radiant red and gold wall fan is one of our most popular sellers and sure to make a marvelous addition to any wall. Also makes a great gift for people who love dragons and anyone who appreciates Chinese decor.
